One of the usual cases when the album cover is better then what's inside… But to be honest, this effort is a little better than the previous one. "Eagle's Flight" is a short bluesy number, on which Lawton sings only one half, giving us yet another chance to compare his (still) phenomenal set of pipes and just as phenomenal vocal style with the patetic singing of his successor. The Japanese version has a KILLER bonus track called "Didn't Know It Was Love".
