There is a strong focus on compostion in this second release. The confidence of the band in the quality of the writing shines through the performances, and many of these numbers became firm parts of the band's live sets. The title track from Malcolm MacFarlane uses some modern classical techniques to develop interplay between the four guitars, and Ged Brockie develops a beautiful theme using all four voices in When Spring Breaks Through. There is a good sense of fun creeping through, such as the playful Dance of the Gypsy King (in honour of Ged's mythical Andalusian childhood) and pop hooks which my kids like (From Dawn to Dust). Kevin MacKenzie also offers his first recorded composition for the band (Sidewardly Mobile), which some like me will find attractively quirky, and others may find a bit wierd. The solo duties fall largely on Malcolm MacFarlane who has crystal clear phrasing and timing. Nigel Clark's solo on From Dawn to Dust is outstanding, with blistering runs fitting of a rock god - but on an acoustic guitar. A strong and satisfying set list. Highly recommended.
