Francis Dunnery's fourth studio solo album was originally released on the New York based Razor & Tie label in 1998 and demonstrates his seemingly endless ability to come up with great tunes. His immense songwriting versatility is in evidence and this was his most diverse album to date, from the fast and raucous Sunflowers to the jazzy Steely Dan-like Riding On The Back with the Tower Of Power horns to the ethereal acoustic guitar ballad Jonah. Elsewhere there is the funked-up Crazy Little Heart Of Mine and the use of mellotron gives a retro prog-touch to My Own Reality. Francis was by this time playing most of the instruments himself guitar, bass and keyboards, but he is also aided by Doug Petty on keyboards and accordion and vocalist Erin Moran. Although Francis didn't tour in the UK for another two years after this album was released, he still playS to sold-out venues.

"This album did not live up to my expectations. Instead it hurdled me full-throttle into a new realm of consciousness. Grasping for words to express the beauty of this album, I'm left to just say that Francis Dunnery knows his s***. Without a dull moment, Dunnery takes the listener on a wild ride to the moon and beyond life and death with a dazzling array of musical styles and grooves.Dunnery is not shy about making Music That Matters. While most artists that attempt this come off as snobish, Dunnery's confession-style wit is delivered without a trace of pretense. The message, is overwhelmingly "you are what you believe you are." To Dunnery, misery is optional, and this emphasis on spirituality is terrifically infectious. The message is aptly mixed with unusual imagery to keep you listening and entertained.Do yourself a favor and go get this album."
A rare, beautifully off-beat album full of positive vibes.

"It's not often an artist is caught on tape in such fine form. 'Lets go do what happens' is a little inaccessable at first, but on further listening explodes into a beautifully constructed sound-scape. this his third album sees Francis mature; taking a more witty experimental approach in tracks like 'Crazy as a Pitstop' & 'Give up your day job'. The songs are weighted with complex layered sounds and an infectious positive message - the perfect antidote to an attack of the blues. Listening to 'Revolution' you get a real sense of sincerity on the artists part, through a mix of clever lyric and an emotional delivery. This is an album with a Lennonesque message for the 90's, to love yourself, believe in yourself and be yourself. This man has talent. Francis Dunnery has always been known for his exceptional skill on guitar, on 'Lets go do what happens' he shows us he is also a skilled singer/songwriter. I just can't wait to see what he'll come up with next. Buy it now."
