What Bryan Says...

"It's generally a lot heavier all round, I think. It's heavyweight where the first one was lightweight or bantamweight, or whatever. The mood of a lot of the songs is quite heavy...

"The first album, for me, was only half successful, because I tend to like more and more, the songs I did changes to rather than those I left virtually the same as the original records. With this one I tried to do a totally new arrangement on every number, and put as much of me on it as possible."
