AllMusic Review by

Tears for Beers' second release is much more rock oriented than their debut - Celtic-rock, that is. Several more original pieces are included on this recording like the anthem "Generation Y" and the superb "Day After Day" both co-written by Lars Jensen. Roland Schneider's electric guitar is more prevalent here as well and while the bluegrass influences aren't as pronounced there still exists underlying bluegrass intonations. Instrumentally Tears for Beers are quite adept, particularly on stringed instruments; Lars Jensen on banjo and bouzouki, Roland Schneider on guitars and Bernd Unstaedt on fiddle and mandolin. Lynsey De Paul's "Sugar Me" is a peculiar inclusion here but fortunately it doesn't detract from the flow of the album.
