    Thanks for the opportunity to hear this one jasonkont.
    Based on what i've heard of Masai i wasn't expecting too much from it, but although they're not that heavy, the songs are really well written with great hooks & strong instrumental performances, good singing & a complimentary production.
    For some reason i can imagine Phil Lynott singing these songs, perhaps it's the singer's way of phrasing?
    The B Side songs are definitely better to my ears, with the insistent moody guitar part in the verse of 'Talk Of The Devil' ensuring it's been stuck in my head all day.
    Surprising that they weren't/aren't better known considering how 'together' they were musically.
    A much appreciated upload.

    JASON mega thanx for this offer aderfe!! Heavy rock to my ears and less of hard rock, pretty enjoyable though!! Bearing a lot of early 70s influences to their music, it's a very interesting and satisfying effort, especially when the lead guitars come forth!! CHEERS BRO!! porosimetal
