4 stars If there was one number absent this would've been another real gem but Your Own Special Way has simply no business on such album. Not that this is a bad song in itself - it would settle fine on any Celine Dion record - but here Mr Rutherford [%*!#]ed up and because of internal stife (and individual credits and royalties) it seems Mr Banks let this one on the record to counter the sheer mass of Hackett material. Special Way is probably 20 percent of the reason Hackett left (this is my personal reading but if you think about it.....).

The rest of the album is normal but slightly lesser quality than TOT Tail. One For The Vine is one of those quest as White Mountain or Mad Man Moon. Eleventh Earl Of Mar is correct but Mouse's Night is sub-par to Robbery , Harold The Barrel , Battle Of Epping Forest & Get Them Out By Friday . The three Hackett tracks on side two are the cornerstone of this album: Blood On Rooftop is one of the best English nostalgia and Slumber and Earth are simply delightful instrumental.

Although still a classic album, when you look at it retrospectively, this album is really the start of lesserthings to come!!
