Changing bassists (adding Jason "Moose" Harris), but not the bass sound, NMA's next release, The Ghost of Cain, trades a little of its reverb for a MOR album which sold poorly in America. In Great Britan and Germany, however, the band realized a cult following. The sound was further expanded with the addition of Mark Feltham's harmonica on "Poison Street" and "Ballad." "Poison Steet" was released as a 12-inch dance remix and made a dent into that market. "Heroes," another song about the differences between generations is the highlight of the album.
