“I liked the lyrics of most of the tracks. I have a penchant for what I would call 'clever' or thoughtful lyrics. Music is excellent all round inc bass, lead and keyboards. Vocals at times reminded me a little of Dave Lawson esp on 'The Philosopher' Favourites were definitely 'Walk in the sun' 'L'Autobus' 'Sweet Surrender' 'Save us from the knowing Eyes'- I loved the opening line sums up how I feel sometimes. 'Mystery Train' and 'Mothers Prayer' But having said that I enjoy(ed) them all and they are all on my playlist Thanks Phil and the rest of the band you have a convert - hopefully may get to see you live one day”
