Originally this album was supposed to be labelled as a solo project by lead member of Jet Circus, Ez Gomer. In the end it keeps the name of Jet Circus, which is probably a good move since it is a much more recognisable name. After all the band caused a stir in the early '90s, with their debut album 'Step On It', and were among the first bands to combine metal and rap. Nonetheless this is a solo project for Ez (he did the production too!), but with a long list of contributors helping him out. Included amongst them are Mikkey Dee (Motorhead), Stefan Elmgren (Hammerfall), Tommy Denander (Radioactive) as well as contributions from Jet Circus members Terry Haw and Michael Ulvsgärd. A solid and heavy album that is full of attitude, this features crunchy guitars and gritty vocals and should still please old fans of the Jet Circus but will also appeal to people not familiar with the pioneering group. Another great aspect of this album is the positivity it breeds within the listener; the songs are wonderfully cheerful and are destined to raise your spirits, if not a broad grin across your face! This ranges from the wonderful opening track, with the second and fourth also of great quality, through to the more reflective "The Way You Bless Me". It's also worth mentioning that the sleeve boasts some great artwork and photography.
