I actually purchased this by mistake, thinking it had the brilliant Ian Parry on vocals. Alas too late I realised that Ian was only on the last 3 of their releases. This is the first one, with another singer. And in my opinion at least it's pretty dreadful. The songs are pretty much by numbers (except maybe the first one that's not bad) and the singer is way too screechy for my taste. Pity because the latter ones with Ian are quite brilliant.
