Me too to be honest, or at least that's what I was hoping for when you know who left, but I think they've morphed into something thats different but as good in its own way. I almost think this is like the 3rd stage of UB40 starting now, the first being the early albums, the second starting with LOL1..... and the fact that they can change so much to something so different (albeit within the reggae field) shows some real artistry. Most artists are lucky if they come up with one 'chop'

on the other hand is brilliant.

I'll disagree with you OL, the steely thingy complements the music & duncan's voice, finishes it of nicely....it gives it that extra zing.........................The music suits duncan's folky country voice.

Totally agree re Duncan's vocals - it gives him a chance to demonstrate his vocal dexterity and has delivered in full.

I for one applaud him given it is only his second full album which people sometimes forget.

& the pedal steel guitar just embellishes the arrangements beautifully.

Duncan's third album if you count the solo record he cut with Ali in the mid 90's but I totally agree man, this album showcases Duncan's vocals nicely

sigh..... swoon ..yes definitely suits ...although I think it is only a few of the songs which are definitely recognisable as country.....Duncan's voice thrills the heart....sways the soul..... carries one away ....quality ....class
