John Lees has never made a decent solo album, and that is what this is. He doesn't have enough good songs to do it. He needs to work with Les Holroyd; between the two of them they can just about manage an album.
Much of this is dreadful. A track starts with a hokey synthesised chord ... and holds it, interminably, while we marvel at how it is both uninteresting and unnatural. Production is dreadful. It frankly sounds like a pub band, and the standard of composition is no better.
I really wanted to like this. But it came along with Asia's "Gravitas" in the post, and there is no comparison.
Save your money.
