Jim Kerr', the Simple Minds front man steps out with a solo album that for the most part is indistinguishable from the Minds recent 'Graffiti Soul'. But then given the quality of the latter there are enough highs here to satisfy Jim stated aim of 'coming 'face to face with the lost boy that I had left behind.
I wanted to make music that reflected the rediscovery of the Return Of The King - Lostboy!* A.K.A Jim Kerr - Lostboy! A.K.A Jim Kerr (CD with which I had reconnected.
