Sometimes you look for one thing and you get another! While scrolling Amazon.de for the Craaft debut album, I also find this, their second album, aptly titled "Second Honeymoon" and ordered it without having heard a note (not on Spotiy like the debut), but based on the quality of the debut! After listening I must admit this is the lesser one, the debut being a true AOR classic (see my review of "Craaft" elsewhere). The songs on offer here are more in the Glam Rock vein, where the debut was pure AOR. Still melodic, but with rawer vocals and simpler songs. Towards the end (this is the 16 track re-edition) more songs in the style of the debut kick in. Still, if you like your rock melodic, give this a try.
Sometimes you get more than you look for as 16 tracks is a bit too much here also, it is always great to get more for your money, but like many re-issues that add bonus tracks mostly the concept of the original album gets lost and/or the extra songs do not contain the same quality and where left out for a reason initially. Here the songs are good, but the structure of the album is gone.
