This was a single release that The Predators released after the 'Social Decay' album and before their final album 'Offensive'. By this time the band had changed line ups and styles and had more synth sounds at the heart of what they were doing. "Never Let You Down" sounds like a relationship song but in fact is an invitation from God to the listener for more intimacy. A timeless idea! "Time And Again" kicks off with a classic Predators' riff and eventually kicks into that catchy chorus warning the hearer not to get burnt. There's even (shock!) a sax solo on here which is a real departure for the band! Sadly, like the 'Offensive' album which was to follow, the production on here lets things down and hasn't travelled well from the '80s.
