AllMusic Review by

Not to be confused with the Iowa band of the same name, David Blazye's debut album follows the orchestral fire and brimstone of "Ambulance Chasers," his first single for DB, home of the considerably acclaimed Electric Soft Parade. An accomplished songwriter, Blayze satisfies those awaiting the second Turin Brakes album with a similar line of strung-out guitar-orientated pop that deals with lost love, yet avoids getting stuck within its own melancholy through lively arrangements and a permafrost of rich orchestral arrangements.
