This album stems from an initiative to raise funds for homeless young people in Stroud. The project's leader is guitarist/vocalist/composer Rob Fulton and the 10 songs here sweep through a wide range of style and rhythms. Rather 'churchy' in its vocal approach, it at times resembles an updated version of Cloud, with a small choir handling most of the vocals. Plenty of daring brass playing though some of it a tad ragged. The songs are well developed though breaking no new ground lyrically and the intentionally cornball "Too Good To Be True" is somewhat painful. Not a great album though no doubt there are folk who'd like to support this worthy project.
