RUNNING BACK - A really nice, laid back song, almost Blues Rock with a slight Pop element. ROMEO AND THE LONELY GIRL - I really like this song, its a little cheesy in the lyric, "poor romeo sitting all on his owni-io"!  Other than that its a nice song with the usual great guitar moments.   WARRIORS - A little  Progressive Rock, ty
