Corey Glover is sprinkled all over this album with the hard rock of 'Stand Up For Love' and the funky 'Universal Pain.' The highlight of the album is the complete collaboration of all these iconic voices on a cover of Edwin Starr's 'War.' Blondie Chaplin's weathered voice lends to the authenticity of 'Love You Forever,' while Adam Ezra's vocals gives 'Grey Space' that nineties alternative rock feel. The album closes with the gentle sway of 'You Will Be On Your Way' as Blondie Chaplin brings it all back home with his passion for singing. â' JPâs Music Blog<br><br>TRACK LISTING: <br>1. Time (Feat.
