Unconsumed and powerful like a newcomer band, the Norwegians mostly come across on their second longplayer, even though they already have a proud twelve years on their backs. But it takes a little time to turn them on properly. Because while the first four tracks - among them a kind of depressive version of Tom Petty's "Free Falling" - still seem a bit indecisive and fetched, for example the strange suicide fantasy number "Look Away", it's officially starting with song number 5 ("Dead Man's Shoes"). The faster and rockier track fits Inglow much better than the label "Norwegian Muse", which has already been stuck on them. However, the spacious keyboard sound fits the overall picture, as the last song "Till It's Over" proves. After that there are three more bonus tracks, two softer pop rock numbers and a superfluous acoustic version of "Look Away".
