Recovering the Wasted Years comes after Mike moved from the USA to Australia. Produced by Mike Tramp and mixed by the well known Phil Kaffel (White Lion & Freak of nature) who gives it a fresh and very melodic sound. Most of these songs are easy to remember. Mike sings about real life topics in which many can reflect and recognize themselves. Ex. Freak of Nature member Kenny Korade contributed his guitar talent to this album among others. Guest appearance on guitar is Oliver Steffensen which was one of the original Freak of Nature members shortly and a long time friend of Mike Tramp.
