A Review by:
The Dude on the Right

Yes, that’s Tommy Shaw, the dude from Styx, and if you’re a Styx fan, you couldn’t do wrong getting this CD. “Ocean,” the opening track, is a strong rocker, but he does show a more sensitive side on a song like “A Place to Call My Own.” I was pleasantly surprised playing this CD, as it’s one of those I hadn’t paid attention to before. It’s got some solid rocking songs, some slower songs, and some guests like Ted Nugent, Jack Blades, and Kevin Cronin. It’s got more of a Damn Yankees feel rather than a Styx feel, but if you’re a fan of either this one’s not bad.

For me, it’s about a 75% on the Entertainment Ave! listenability scale. This one is on my list of CD’s to add to my computer jukebox, at least most of the tracks.

That’s it for this quick review! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
