FIREBRAND Magazine - Rob Birtley:

"Fugitive's sound takes me back to that period in the 80's when N.W.B.H.M. and Hard Rock AOR bands were slugging it out. Bands like Tobruk, Jagged Edge, Tyketto, Nutz and Export come to mind. Mix in a little Thunder and later Rainbow with a bit of UFO and you are in the ball park.
'Alive' - an anthem for all us Weekend Warriors, I know i'm not the only one who's wanted to tell a boss just what to do with his 9 to 5. Ranko chips in with two nice guitar parts and the whole song rocks along nicely.
'Behind Closed Eyes' - a ballad in the Bon Jovi mould including some nice acoustic guitar. Guess you could say it's the lighter in the air moment done in a superior fashion.
'Look inside your heart' - Chunkier guitar, the whole things brings to mind some of FM's better effrots. A definitie track for our AOR lovers.
'Overnight Sensation' - has the craft of a good Tyketto song about it, only in a British way with Mikee sounding more like Danny Bowes that Danny Vaughn. This also has some of the best guitar parts on the album . Like all this release, the vocal harmonies are tight and spot on filling out the sound.
'Temptation' - is a rocker in the Rainbow / Jagged Edge style. The opening reminds me of Streets of Dreams and the whole song has that otherworldly compulsive feel with guitar work heading into the Blackmore realm.
'Janie' - opens with just the bass line then begins to build. The vocal from Mikee starts quiet and plaintive then soars on in. The attack on this song is midway between Rainbow and UFO with a hybrid rhythm and bluesy groove. The guitar solo is more Schenker than Blackmore and the track ends with the statutory drum roll rocking right to the end. Have to say this is one of the most radio friendly tracks on the album.
'This ain't love' - is in the style of the sleazier Def Leppard songs with a touch of Motley Crue thrown in for good measure slowed down slightly and shaken with blues.

Fugitive list their interests as 'Playing loud 'n' hard, rallying and drinking and this makes perfect sense of 'In Transit' . You will need to turn up the volume and crack open a can or three, maybe light up the BBQ as well because it puts you in the mood to party biker style. Never a bad thing".
