Strange and Beautiful lacks lot of the power, emotion and epicness of their first two, however, it
doesn't try. The best way to describe it would be solo Robert Plant meets Queensryche. They sound
like they were formed roughly 600 miles northwest (or the UK) and about seven years earlier. (They
were formed in 1979 after all), as there is something about it that is very... southern. It is a
diverse, a little inconsistent (in sound, not so much in quality), entertaining and interesting
ride. While it isn't nearly as good as their first two, it is still a great album.
