None.

Personal Review:
So, this is one of those odd one of a kind albums, where the A-Side has one song, and the B-Side has more – yes I know it’s an EP. Seems Images in Vogue liking doing this.

The A-Side opens and closes with the song “Rescue Me” which comes out as a pretty great song, with a strong chorus and great musicianship. It doesn’t matter how you look at this track, either way it’s pretty great. I definitely could dance to this song. Sadly, it’s only a few minutes long, then it’s onto the B-Side.

The B-Side opens with my personal favorite Images in Vogue track, “Call It Love” – I can dance to this, and the chorus is pretty amazing. Especially with the line “You can call it love if you want to, there is something warm inside you.” – which can be taken many different ways. This is definitely another dance track. It’s followed by “Everything About You” – which is a good track, no real complaints here, I definitely love the musicianship above all else. After that comes “Calling My Name” – which has an opening quite like those on the soundtrack of the film “Labyrinth” – it’s a good song, there is a lot of great musicianship on this album itself, I’m not even sure how to take it all. The synthesizer playing is off the wall on this track, it’s quite amazing. The album opens with the beautifully amazing “Save It” – which has an opening a lot like a Joy Division song I’ll never remember. The chorus gets pretty amazing, and the song is absolutely stunning, it makes for a terrific closing track.

Did I mention Kevin Crompton also appears on this LP?
