And There It Is indeed: a load of crap from Samson, needlessly re-formed, once again retooled, and long past their prime, here trying to replace much-liked departed singer Nicky Moore (who, in turn, had replaced Iron Maiden screamer Bruce Dickinson) with newcomer Mick White and an assortment of faceless background musicians. The result: incompetent pop/rock not even proficient enough to qualify as AOR, and often reminiscent of the horrendous work of Neat Records abortions such as Valhalla and Emerson -- White's former band, incidentally. In fact, except for the eponymous guitarist's strong display on "Good to See You," this EP may well denote an all-time low for material released under the Samson banner. Avoid at all costs!
