"Alot of the music I have come to love over the years has come from a photographic moment in time, having the radio on at a precise moment and boom there it is. It was about 1983 and I was cruising in a car just north of Ft. Lauderdale on A1A in Boca Raton, it was late in the afternoon, i was surfing the stations when all of a sudden this. Need I say more. I need not give Klaus Doldinger any acolades of accomplishment. This cd says it all. This is fun and flowing fusion, great drum work too by a drummer who's name misses my recall, great sax, guitar, this is music for driving in a high end auto just after you dumped some big bucks on your dinner date and your heading out for the night. Push the gas pedal down and punch in Man In The Mirror. Believe it or not this review is from a guy who loves Metallica and Puddle Of Mud too. Excellent CD!"
Fantastic Latter-Day Work

"If you are a fan of 1970's Passport and are not sure about any of the band's 80's recordings,look no further.Those who listen to "Man In The Mirror" will be under the impression they are
hearing Klaus Dolinger's clever channeling of Herbie Hancock and
Steely Dan of the same vintage,in other words electro-funk with
a slight world-beat twist combined with a highly streamlined,
polished fusion undertone.This apporch comes to fruitation on
the "Babylon Sisters"-like "Evocation" and the vocal piece "The Great Escape" .Two showcase hightlites
would be "Glass Culture",a pounding electro-funk jam complete
with shattering glass and metallic guitar effects and the tital
song which strangly enough reminds me of the highly catchy yet
forboding dance-pop of The Jacksons "Triumph" album-go figure.
All in all a grand statement by major veteran players!"
