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



Side A:
1. GLYDER - There's No Business
  Pomp rock.
2. THE VECTORS - You Can Knock Me Down
  Mellow alt. rock.
3. THE AGENTS - Distant Angel
  AOR.
4. JEFF LOGAN - Another Loves Gone Bad
  Whiney soft rock.
5. DAVID HUNTINGTON - Smiling Just For You
  Upbeat folk rock.

Side B:
1. MOST WANTED - Change Your Mind
  After a dreadful side A, along comes this! Great NWOAHM with a dark BLEAK HOUSE vibe.
2. RICK STRICKLAND - The Puzzle
  Poppy prog rock that reminds me of 80s UTOPIA.
3. MAN MADE - Sexual Intellectual
  Some very metal guitarwork on this one, despite the clapping and pop-punk chorus.
4. MIKE BARBER - Head Over Heels
  Powerpop.
5. WARHEAD - Street Survivors
  A nice bass line leads into some BLITZKRIEG type metal with an American twist (particularly in the chorus). Also released as a single 2 years later.
