Music - 5 stars

This album sparkles. Among the stars, it's a supernova. The songwriting is extraordinary [not a clinker can be found], and Artful Dodger has chops most bands can only envy.
Both hard rockers and ballads are catchy and full of hooks. The band's vocal harmonies are full and sweet which perfectly counter the gruff lead singer Billy Paliselli.

This is one of the great records that got lost in the mid 70's music style shuffle

Those who love rock, veteran collectors, novices, or the just plain curious, track this one down. Artful Dodger's debut is something very special.
