Even the slower title track fails to provide anything exciting or original, and "Under suspicion" sound like little more Knokke, Oh Knokke - Eddy Wally - Knokke, Oh Knokke a pale cover version of Survivor's "Eye of the tiger". The only real saving grace is the cover of Dionne Warwick's "Walk on by" written by Bacharach and David. This is much more like the old Vanilla Fudge.
Yes it's still got the synthesisers in place of the Hammond, but at least it's slowed down and "heavy". It's not that the music here is actually bad, but it is very anonymous, and other than "Walk on by" bears no relation Vanilla Fudge - Mystery what we had come to expect of the band in their heyday. There were any number of bands already making this type of music, and Vanilla Fudge Vanilla Fudge - Mystery nothing original to differentiate Vanilla Fudge - Mystery from the pack.
Of these, his work on "My world is empty" is one of the few highlights of the album. It is just another weak offering ranging between some unbearable synth sounds but typical of the eighties and some soul oriented music.
But it is not the first time that the band will display some soulish tendencies. The whole album is a nice journey into the most boring songs they Lakeside Scenarios - Jeffrey Morgan - Ritual Space ever written. Because it is almost an "original" album if you would just except some covers like "My World Is Empty Without You" from the.

Quiet Riot 's producer gives Vanilla Fudge -- whom producer Shadow Morton discovered in the late '60s -- a "bang your head" onslaught of big hair drums, compressed Vanilla Fudge - Mysteryand tired homogenization.
The fun psychedelic distortion of Vinny Martell is totally stripped away -- he is relegated to rhythm guitar on one song and backing vocals on three. That is a total travesty. One Ron Mancuso is listed under Martell in the credits, but he is the hip guitarist recruited for this calculated disc to replace Martell. His name might be in small print, but his sound is what is splashed all over this veteran group's comeback attempt.
Proffer takes the once angelic voices and puts them through his machinery to come up with something that could be Patty Smyth 's Scandal or even 38 Special. Clearly, this wasn't an attempt at former glories, but a stab at reinventing the band instead of putting their trademark arrangements on familiar tunes. This is everything fans of '60s music hate about the '80s. That this was released on Foreigner 's own label is even more appalling. The song that follows, "The Stranger," thankfully does not cop Billy Joel Vanilla Fudge - Mystery riffs -- it is interesting because of the use of Vanilla Fudge 's slow pace combined with metal of the day.
Had the band gone totally heavy metal with this, perhaps taking a Black Sabbath signature tune like "Paranoid" and making it sound like their second Top 40 hit, the eternal "Take Me for a Little While," much of this could be excused.
Near the Beginning. The group did a TV commercial for Braniff Air, and also recorded a radio commercial for Coca Cola with guitarist Jeff Beck, a fill-in for Vince who was unable to be there that day.
This event gave rise to the eventual creation of a Cream-styled power trio featuring Beck, Vanilla Fudge - Mystery and Appice. Exhausted by the constant touring, the Vanilla Fudge decided that their late European tour would be their last. Appice went on to become an active session and touring musician, working with a variety of rock and hard rock artists. Vince continued to perform, record, teach and host his own radio shows in the tri-state New York area.
