Produced by Keith Cleversley, this is an eclectic musical journey that is as entertaining as it is diverse. Very well put together by Keith, the band's evident skills are brought out and adequately mixed to give a full sound to the proceedings. Sydney's vocals will appeal to most who venture a spin, coupled with the verity of sound produced by the rest of the band. An album that stands out in a crowded marketplace, though lyrically Sydney manages to lose at least this listener as the to the point of her massage. Though witty 'Living On Takeout'), much of the material here verges on the nonsensical; with choruses such as , 'Won't you join us for a ride through the moon/Around the stars to Mars/It's irresistible,' ('Bounty Hunter'). Though there are allusions to a more spiritual outlook ('Water's Overhead' and 'Falling') but these are fint at best; leaving the rest of the material to sound good, but vague resulting in the listener becoming rather confused and alienated. An obscure set of compositions which rate highly in the field of entertainment, but lacking when it comes to lyrical comprehension.
