Former Black Sabbath vocalist Tony Martin appeared on most of the album, and was in particularly fine voice on songs like ‘Strangers’, ‘Ready Or Not’, ‘Reaper’ and the big ballad ‘Put A Little Faith In Me’; former Vengeance (and current Elegy) frontman Ian Parry did a fine job on three other songs. Steve Dunning, now John Lawton’s bassist, and ex-Girl drummer Pete Barnacle were part of a talented supporting cast. The album received acclaim from the melodic hard rock community.
