This album entered the UK album charts at number 32, an excellent beginning for a solo career. It contains 10 tracks, all of which are Rory compositions and clearly show the continued blues rock direction that he began with Taste. A trademark of Rory's music is his inclusion into the fusion, jazz and folk instruments like alto sax and mandolin. "I'm Not Surprised" stands out on this album with it's mellow "unplugged" feel and loosely based Blues structure.
