It is a quality sound with the skilful guitar player leading all the way.At times it sounds almost medieval & at others it is really avant-garde. Gordon Giltrap composes each piece to classical standards & it sounds as if he's had a good solid musical training. It is classical guitar in a rock context that makes this album almost unique in its interpretation.

Two founder members are joined by a tuneful lady,Virginia David, & her bro- ther, & it's a happy marriage indulging Sailor's liking for elaborate harmonies The range is considerable as you are reminded now of Queen, now of Manhatten Transfer..N Sometimes the lyrics are banal (the witty "Hat Check Girl" is an exception) but clever arrangements distract from theseN "Danger On The Titanic" is an exceptional track and could be the hit single if there's the deserved exposure
