FROM THE TOYBOX
Written by Magnus Florin

Well, this is a bit away from the progressive rock scene, but indeed with similar quality and feel. It's a lot as if Toto met Asia and found out that they could work together. Songs are indeed very easy listening and with great choruses. The thing I like the most about the CD is that Simon Apple don't just stand there with the slowest beat and tried to do a cool guitar solo. Instead, they march on with attitude and confident feel. The vocals are a lot, and then I mean a lot, like Steve Lukather. To not mention that name in this review would be a shame, since Simon Apple really sounds a lot like Lukathers solo albums. I guess these guys know their Toto. The correct label on the music would probably be Progressive AOR West Coast, or something like that. Great musicians with a great feel for what they're doing, and that's exactly as it should be.
