The players seem to be held at bay as well. I was really happy when Eric Marienthal replaced Paul Taylor on sax who had a sound so thin he sounded like the band would literally blow him off the stage; A guy like Eric Marienthal can play his butt off, but you'd never know that from this record where he is forced to play simple riff-oriented songs. If you're looking for background music, you may be satisfied but the Rippingtons and Russ are "Miles Away" from their best material.
There is one beautiful track on this record "In The End" which, while it has a less complete melody than say "One Summer Night In Brazil" or other Ripps ballads, has a very nice asthetic to it. The drumming on that track is especially nice.
