Review by Alphonse Leong
This guy is pretty amazing to have emerged from the indulgent poppy '80s to still put out meaty, organic stuff in the '90s. Not that his extravagant keyboard stuff was bad (that "Cosmetics" tune still has a silly but catchy resonance!), but it's nice to see an artist evolve.
Two tracks on this CD are previously unreleased and they are also the worst ones on the CD. One is a cover of the Guess Who's "These Eyes," with such a weird electronica-flavoured mix and mawkish vocals that Burton Cummings must be seething. The other, "Healing Waters" is a weepy piece originally recorded in 1990, but remade in 1997 and dedicated to Princess Diana to cash in on the tribute craze... Hoo boy, thank God for the other songs on this disc!
