FIND MY WAY THE ALBUM:..TRACK 1, AVALANCHE..A POWER-HOUSE ROCKER OF A TUNE THAT DUBS UP IN THE FINAL THIRD - A MASSIVE TRACK..BAD ASS BIKER MUSIC. TRACK 2,STRONG AND PRAY... ITS AS IF THE CLASH WHERE STILL ABOUT, JAH PUNK RETURNS, , STRONG PUNK REGGAE TRACK GRAIG RIPS IT WITH A CASH/STRUMMER TYPE VOCAL ATTACK..GUEST LYRICS BY S.K.P. UNDERGROUND DANCE-FLOOR. TRACK 3,RUN N HIDE, OPENS LIKE A 1967 OPEN MIC NIGHT SOMEPLACE, HEATS UP INTO A NEAT POP/ROCK SONG,THE GREAT ENERGY IS CAPTURED IN THE PRODUCTION, NICE VOCAL SHAW. TRACK 4, FIND MY WAY... BACK TO JAH PUNK..A SKA FEEL WITH HORNS..DUBS UP NICE TOO....A FREEWAY DRIVE-TIME TUNE IF EVER THERE WAS ONE.. REALLY SHOULD BE ON THE JUKE-BOX DOWN AT THE ALBERT IN OLD BRIXTON. TRACK 5, DIRTY POOL, I FACKEN LOVE THIS TRACK, A ROCK AND ROLL/BLUES MONSTER CRAIG SHAW, THE LONG LOST SON OF JOHHNY CASH GIVES IT GOOD AND PROPER HERE..FOR THIS ONE YOU GOTTA DO THE JOHN TRAVOLTA PULP FICTION DANCE..TWO FINGERS OVER THE EYES WITH THE SNAKE HIPS BABY, YOU GET ME? TRACK 6,DANCE SISTER DANCE, THIS SONG HAS THE LATE 70'S BRASSY FAST, FUNKY ROCK THING HAPPENING - A BUSY BASSLINE, REALLY DANCEABLE WITH SKAT LYRICS FROM "UNDERGROUND FAMOUS" S.K.P. I SHOULD IMAGINE THIS ONE SMACKS IT UP A BIT LIVE. TRACK 7, WOKE UP THIS EVENING...A SOUNDTRACK FOR A PUNCH-UP IN A BIKERS CLUB IF EVER I HEARD ONE, CLANGING GUITAR INTRO, AWESOME DRUMS. DARK TUNE. TRACK 8, DESERT SUN.... THIS TRACK EVOKES THE LATE 60'S AND THE HEAT OF WOODSTOCK A FINE SONG, NICE BRASS TOUCHES THE PRODUCTION WELL DESERVES MENTIONING..IM LIKING THIS ALBUM. TRACK 9, WHO DO YOU LOVE....STONES LIKE INTRO... CRAIG SHAW LETS THE GUITARS RIP A BIT HERE( AND WHY FACKEN NOT?), SLIGHT EFFECT ON THE VOCALS GIVES THIS TRACK AN UPTIGHT FEEL.. OH FOR SURE CRAIG SHAW CAN GET NASTY. LOVE THE MAN. TRACK 10,...MAMA GOT THE BLUES,..OLD TIME STOMPING BLUES TRACK. TRADITIONAL. CRAIG ROCKING THE HARMONICA SUPERBLY ON THIS TRACK. BIG STOMPING TUNE, GREAT DRUMS, THE HARMONICA, EXCELLENT VOCALS..WHAT MORE DO YOU FACKEN WANT? CHARITY? TRACK 11, IN THIS WORLD.. BIT OF A SWIRLING HIPPIE FEEL TO THIS TRACK BASS THROBS, FUZZY GUITAR..DEFINATELY A BIT OF A HIPPIE TRIP THROW BACK HERE..PROBABLY MY FAVE TRACK RIGHT FACKEN HERE.

Mr shaw shows his versatility here.Surprising twists between full-on Rock,Ska and Accoustic...and songs with a spiritual edge and Heart felt yearnings.

Avalanche,Desert Sun,and Ellas Song,are the pick of the album.
