"I remember seeing the video for "Crown Of Madness" in 1991 and anticipating Dave Stewart's new release, but it never came. The truth was that "Honest" was never released in America. Thanks to Amazon for carrying imports. I just bought this cd and must say that it is good, but probably not as good as the previous, 1990 release, "Dave Stewart And The Spiritual Cowboys". "Honest" follows the same musical vein as the former release but to lesser effect. There are still some great songs on "Honest", but I can see why Dave broke up the Spiritual Cowboys after this release and why the record company may have passed on releasing it in America. Dave Stewart doesn't make bad music and "Honest" can attest to this with songs like "Honest", "Whole Wide World", "Crown Of Madness" and "Fool's Paradise". If you are a fan of Dave or Eurythmics you can't miss with this second solo release. This cd was followed by 1994's "Greeting From The Gutter" and 1998's "Slyfi"."

"This is a brillant album, the kind of recording you put on and listen from beginning to end, and then start over again...."
