This Cry album was the sixth release in six years for John. By adopting a new band name he continued to define an identity outside that of leader of Fischer-Z. The tracks are poppy and keyboard rich with the influence of Mike Benn. The political themes are less obvious in the lyrics, but the colours of backbeat guitar and reggae are still in evidence. This is an album very much of it’s time, initially produced by Jimmy Douglass and bearing some of the hall marks of his dance productions. A single ‘The Way You Move’ was not included on the record, but was fancied as an American hit single.
