Album Review

The 1983 follow-up to Johnny Warman's Australian hit, Walking into Mirrors, but not destined for anywhere near the attention of its predecessor, From the Jungle to the New Horizons nevertheless follows very much in that album's electrifying mode, hurling the best in current recording technology into the mix and taking full advantage of his backing band as well — Peter Gabriel worked with several of the same musicians (Jerry Marotta, Tony Levin), and the first few tracks here certainly relish such parentage.

The eight bonus tracks, meanwhile, continue rounding out the portrait of Warman as one of the era's most adventurous souls, dipping into the sessions not only for this album, but also projects dating back to the late '70s.

It went nowhere and, when the band split, Warman signed solo with Ringo Starr's Ring-O label, releasing a single in 1977 and a Germany-only...
