Profile Last Link to the World” is incredibly powerful and surprisingly modern. Phil Naro takes the songs in very unorthodox directions when it comes to the vocal melody lines on some tracks. It sounds very fresh and even groundbreaking. Naro has an excellent voice and is using it to perfection. The vocal performance is very personal with an amazing amount of class. The way he writes the vocal melody lines, the way he phrases and vocal arrangements are top notch.

The songs are fairly complex at times but never get pretentious. On guitars we meet Silvo Simone (Tom Cochrane), drummer Randy Cooke (Kim Mitchell, The Four Horsemen, Emerald Rain, Lee AAron, Winter Rose) and Stan Miczek (Sass Jordan, Mark St. John Project, 24K, Honeymoon Suite, Darren Smith Band) on bass. There was talk of recording another album in 1999, but no new material has yet seen the light of day.
