Ian Franklin and his superb band have a jazz-influenced modern pop that's very appealing on this album. "Better Days" is a cool, accomplished song with a reggae flavor. The title song is a funky excursion that works really well. Franklin's voice really shines here. "Lucky star" is another fine song, the band managing a tight groove to underpin Franklin's smooth vocals. It's an entirely engaging album. (email@example.com)
