    Some more excellent Roxy-esque Music from Iva Davies and company on their 3rd album. "This Time" and the b-side, "Dance On" are the big winner here in the Bryan Ferry sound-alike sweepstakes, but the great ballads "Stay Close Tonight" and "Don't Believe Anymore" are powerful on their own and aren't particularly redolent of RM. Then the blazing title cut happens and it becomes clear that Iva has also been listening to Simple Minds, specifically their 1983 opus "Sparkle In The Rain." "Sidewalk" is definitely in the vein of Simple Minds, themselves a band with a huge Roxy Music influence. It's derivative, but as usual, Iva only lets the best influence him. "Shot Down" is another stormer of a track but the closing "The Mountain," is an impressionistic masterwork of textural sound. Putting the contemplative instrumental b-side, "Java" right after this is great sequencing!
