POTB Review - the final word?
OK, possibly my least favourite Blade album, BUT, that doesn't mean its crap. It's very different to what came before it that's for sure. I don't know what Andy was trying to do here, whether it was just to try something different or just plain directionless. What is strange is that Alan was getting noticed with Shogun at this point and this album could easily be the tracks rejected by Shogun for the 31 Days album. Harsh words maybe, but there you go. Its not all bad though. Tokyo City is a great slow paced walk with echoes of past glories ringing through it. Don't Walk Away is the other stonker on the album. Could have been straight off a Bon Jovi album. The only other thing on there worth a dime is the awesome guitar solo intro - in fact, despite the poor quality of the songs, Andy does some of his best ever solos on here. 2 and a half great tracks out of 9 isn't a good score, but hey, hats off for trying something new.

The band did tour this album, with Andy Catlin (ex-Cherokee) on bass, playing a few festivals alongside Black Sabbath amongst others, although information on this era is hard to find.
