Quick Overview

In its place the sound was more varied, recalling the likes of Chicago, Night Ranger, Toto and a cast of hundreds of AOR bands. The entire album was commercial in an '80s AOR fashion, but abandoning their Doobies / Steely Dan infatuation certainly didn't help them in the originality department.
