CONTENT
(bold = exclusive track / normal = non-exclusive track / italic = non-metal)



Side A:
1. ETERNITY - Rock The City Rock The Towns
  AOR like NIGHT RANGER.
2. PASSENGER - Took All My Love
  Reggae rock.
3. VOICES - Drive In Show
  Shameless ripoff of I Got You by SPLIT ENZ.
4. LACE - Rock Down
  Decent female fronted hard rock, like a lighter BITCH.
5. SASS - Should Have Listened To Me
  Southern rock inspired hard rock that might have been good if they hadn't done a ballad.

Side B:
1. STROSS FLETCHER - Once Upon A Time
  Progressively inclined heavy rock with dual male and female vocals. Also appeared on the Z98: Rock To Riches compilation.
2. MAGNA SARRA - Shot Twice
  NWOBHM style hard rock. There are some AOR elements in parts, but thankfully without any of the slickness usually associated with them.
3. COMMON FACTOR - Choices
  Prog rock that gets surprisingly heavy about halfway through.
4. US FOX - Feelin' Fine
  Pomp rock instrumental.
5. SHIVER - Under The Lights
  Ahead of its time sleaze. Except for the chorus it sounds like an earlier, heavier version of SALTY DOG.
