Side A:
1. UNIVERSE - Looking For An Answer
  One of the heavier songs from the band and great at that. Very solid FWOSHM.
2. MOTHERLODE - Moving Emotions
  Rocking HM with a raw streak missing from their later material. Different to LP version.
3. SPELLBOUND - Seducer
  Instrumental guitar+keys intro.
4. SPELLBOUND - Love Taker
  Raunchy Hard'n'Heavy Rock with rather mean vocals for the genre in question. Nice stadium rock chorus.
5. SHED - Wisdom Train
  Horrid, pointless 'rock ballad' w/ crap vocals.

Side B:
1. SPELLBOUND - Passion Kills
  Pure aor wimpness.
2. SHED - The Heater Is Hot
  A great surprise considering their 1st miscarriage. Rather original, anthemic Metal with keyboards that for once sound really cool & justified.
3. UNIVERSE - Burning Machine
  The good kind of melodic Hard Rock. You know, like Saracen & stuff...
4. MOTHERLODE - Father Of Lies
  Original, quite Rush-influenced Hard Rock/Metal w/ aucustic parts that doesn't suck. Epic goodness.
