The recent issue no. 184 of trendy British Magazine "Q" has a 3-star review of BUILDING THE MACHINE, by Valerie Potter. Here's the transcription from p. 137:


Ex-Black Sabbath vocalist now finding the funk-rock formula

During the last decade, GLENN HUGHES's solo career has veered between his twin passion of metallic rock and bluesy funk, with varying success. On this release he's at last struck the fine balance between the two.
Opening salvo "Can't stop the flood" is all blustering drums and riffs, with sensitive use of the Hammond organ and Hughes' vocals on top form. The rest is a life-affirming set of funky songs underpinned by the solid guitars of JJ MARSH and an excellent rhythm section, comprising drummer GARY FERGUSON and GLENN HUGHES himself on bass bringing his early work in TRAPEZE bang up to date.

I think this excellent review is quite a feat as Q only reviewed FROM NOW ON ages ago! Also he's rubbing shoulders here with quite a few new bands.
