Comments: "The Key" appearing on this album is not the same line-up which opened for The Chris Squire Experiment; the only common links are Billy Sherwood and the name. Jimmy Haun and Mark Williams have been replaced by Marty Walsh (from Supertramp) and Hugh Meign (who may be a drum machine). This album appears to have been Billy Sherwood's outlet for his non-progressive music. He sounds here more like Night Ranger or Sammy Hagar than World Trade or Chris Squire. Still, it's very nicely done, provided you like such melody-oriented rock.
