The Dutch pairing of Angela Groothuizen and Ruud Mulder released two albums during their 4 year stint together as the band Angela And The Rude (1989-1993). The stronger of the two was 1990's 'Young Souls'. The crisp AOR evident on that album was somewhat lost on this 1992 follow-up. Gone was the edgy synth driven sound, in favour of middle of the road pop/rock. There are a few moments that stand out, but the album itself doesn't capture the energy of its predecessor.

The Songs
The opener 'Guilty Hearted' is as hard as it gets. It could've been a left-over from 'Young Souls' as it sounds similar. Other highlights include the booming pop rocker 'Foolish Heart' which has a familiar ring to it but I can't quite place it. 'Wild Life' is a useful tune too, about a woman living life on the edge. Both 'Restless Heart' and 'Carry Me Around' are far too placid, though the title track which follows lifts the energy somewhat. 'Up Down' has a thick rock solid crunch sound, while 'I Won't Let You Down' is probably the next best song next to the opener. A good guitar rocker with AOR tendencies.

In Summary
An inconsistent listen unfortunately, with a variable set of songs covering ballads to pop rockers. The band lasted until the following year, but the plug was pulled with all members going their separate ways.
