Competent enough Dutch band, a bit low-key on the evidence of this two-track outing, but if smooth pop is your music it's acceptable stuff. The title track and "Faces At The Window" both glide effortlessly along, offering little by way of fresh innovation or any particular points of interest. Decent enough vocalist, well-honed harmony singing, but all a bit too nice and ordinary to arouse much interest in most of us, I suspect. Suggest a more gutsy approach needed, gents.
