Once you get past the name, Cats In Space bring the pomp of the ‘70s back with a powerpop rock edge that makes them sound familiar yet new and exciting. Taking their musical cues from ‘70s pomp-tastic band such as ELO, Queen, REO Speedwagon and Styx the six-piece fuse together glorious harmonies and melodies with a swagger that has rarely been heard lately.
Lead track from this album 'Mr Heartache' (featuring Andy Scott from Sweet on guest guitar) is easily one of the best songs ever written. This band are the epitome of the golden age of rock music on the radio, and ‘Too Many Gods’ is full of glorious keyboards and awash with killer hooks. This high standard of musicianship should perhaps be expected though, especially when you consider the individual members; Greg Hart - guitars, vocals and synthesizer, Paul Manzi - lead vocals, Steevi Bacon - drums, Dean Howard - guitar, Jeff Brown - bass, and Andy Stewart - piano, synthesizer, vocoder, and Wurlitzer, have all played with the likes of Asia, Ian Gillan, Mike Oldfield and Sweet.
