Customer Reviews

Although the actual year this album was released in is close to 1996 rather than what's stated, it is no less interesting. It's colorful diversity and ambition are inviting. Every song is of a different style, yet still identifies Hollins as one of the best that "could have been". Wonderful song writing was not backed up by the same level of commitment to recording and production, mainly due to the fact that a private investment was involved in the makings of the album, rather than traditional record label capital backing. The artist "disappeared" after this release and mainly works as a producer or occasionally as a studio musician for other projects. But I will never forget his incredible leap to put this album together. The album has not received sufficient coverage and air time due to lack of proper representation and marketing, yet it inspired a generation of artists to convert from a traditional record label album making, to self produced, home studio recorded types of albums without compromising on quality. It also received critical acclaim by most of the top industry music critics in glowing reviews, mainly for the lyrics and song writing. I rate 4 stars because I thought the album needed a bit more work in terms of sound (not in quality but rather a more profound statement). I can only hope hat one day we will hear more of him. Adi Golan
