4 stars Great album by this great band, certainly a contender for the best one they've done. After an ever changing line-up, vocalist Sonja Kristina was now the only original member. One might expect imitation or too much change from the original band, but the sound remains very close and faithfull. They have adopted a much heavier sound and slightly less of the acoustic/folky material that was evident on the earlier LP's. Before this, Darryl Way used frequent violin and occasional keyboard, however his replacement here Eddie Jobson is the other way round. He does a fine job as well. Just listen to the intro piano section on Metamorphosis. This was (as far as I know) the first album he ever played on, before joining ROXY MUSIC, FRANK ZAPPA, etc. Its hard to believe he was only around 17 when he played this, marvelous stuff indeed. All band members contributing to the compositions give this a nice varied album as well. Well worth getting hold of. (4.5 stars)
