|Steppin' Out with "Silhouettes and Pilhouettes Volume 4" ...|
|Fourteen Little Diamonds ...|
With the Beatlesque "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" thrown at its finale, "Throw A Stone" impresses as does the moody rocker "Blow Me Down" [which reminds me of The Police in their prime] featuring the fantastic Pete Kent guesting on guitar. Contrast that with the wonderfully jazzy, saxophone straddled "Candles and Wine" and the simply superb ditty "Just Another Teenage Dream", an instrumental "The White Rose ad The Child", the pensive "Shall I Pretend" or the introspective "A Better Me" and you start to realise just how good an effort "Silhouettes and Pirouettes ~ Volume 4" is. Rest assured that all 14 tracks are worthy of equal mention. A cracking album, truly. [9/10]
