The 2007 follow up to Inner Soul, album #2 was a mix of jazz/swing, soul and jangled acoustic strummers. Naturally, contains another 'intermission, this time in D, a demented instrumental and a 3/4 jazz waltz. Played by 5 gentlemen from Warrnambool, Victoria, Australia, and recorded at Thirty Mill in Brunswick, Melbourne & launched at the world famous Port Fairy Folk Festival.

“…the ‘Tank' is one of Warrnambool's great pub/festival musicians. Alright already! comes out of your speakers with the crisp professionalism and spotless production values of a contemporary roots/blues release from the USA: hearing lyrical references to the West Gate Bridge, the Bay of Martyrs, spotting whales in Warrnambool and such only confirms the feeling that Tankard's not actually trying to sound like anyone else, he just happens to have a very tight band and can write excellent songs that slip and slide between contemporary rock, soul, blues, jazz and that rootsy genre one could only label as 'Australian front bar'. Tankard is no tinkler on the keys - take equal parts Jimmy Smith organ, Stevie Wonder funk keyboard and driving piano, shake liberally, pour some brass over a rock solid rhythm section and drink in the results. Stand out tracks include the hard funk of The Incident, driving, brassy blues Get Out Of My House and the leisurely groove of Walkin' Round the Bay - there's no dull points on this album; it will stand up well to the three hour drive from Melbourne to Warrnambool to see the band play live.
- Jarrod Watt, The Backyard, ABC Online

“…takes what’s best in Australian writing, in the tradition of Don Walker and Paul Kelly. A great record” – Billy Baxter, Coodabeens Champions.
