1. Lost in a Lost World – This one sounds very proggy. A great start to the album. It reminded me of something that could have come from a War of the Worlds type of record. The backing vocals are effective.
2. New Horizons – This one’s lovely. Just the kind of song that’s perfect for Justin. I like the drums and guitar here.
3. For My Lady - Is that an accordion? Great! I love the track. I wasn’t keen as it started but the singing is great as are the backing vocals.
4. Isn't Life Strange - Another lovely, graceful Moodies track. Some nice guitar here.
5. You and Me – Great opening to this track. I’d like to hear the drums higher in the mix though.
6. The Land of Make-Believe – Lovely acoustic guitar, very pastoral. Is that a flute?
7. When You're a Free Man – The strings are good here, and there’s some more great backing vocals. Reminds me a bit of ELO’s ‘Mission’. In fact it reminds me a lot.
8. I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band) – Great final track. The piano is good – wish it was higher in the mix. The violin here is very Mik.
9. Island – Too good to be a bonus track. Has tones of a James Bond theme in it.
I don’t think I listened as close as I could have to this album for the very simple reason that I love it! I have plans to listen to this LP a few more times because it’s so listenable. Just the right kind of music to put on when you don’t feel like listening to music if you understand me. A great album from a great band.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
