2 stars I was quite enthusiast to discover this album. Can you imagine this line-up ? The remainings of The Nice together with Patrick Moraz ! Probably my expectations were too high.

First two songs are really painful. Third one "Grand Canyon" is one of the two epics of the album. It shows brilliantness from Moraz on the keys (who will develop even more his kills with "Yes" for a short while).

Although his parts are great, the (few) vocals are awful. At no moments you get the shivers with this music. So this might be their epic, but it really won't be remembered. Next track "Ritt Mickley"is of the calibre of the first two ones : lack of emotion, no inspiration.

"Credo", the second epic closes the album: Moraz is here again wonderful but the Jackson's vocals ruin the work. I can hardly understand that this one can be compared with "Foxtrot "or "Selling England...". I must be dreaming !

Two stars for Moraz's skills and interpretation.
