4 stars This is an excellent album of instrumental hard jazzrock with Gary Moore like a leader of the group,but with the excellent contribution of energetic Jon Hiseman,a really underrrated drummer,after (BUT CLOSE)in importance are the agressive and good keyboards of Don Ayrey,and the effective bass of John Mole. The album begins with an incredible and large intro of drums that seems a war machine fighting with the other instruments,the inquisition have a spanish influence,..a formula that many jazz fusion employ or use,but make show the abilities of Gary Moore ;Last exit have an excellent sequences of solos of guitat and bass with a lot of feeling..The track Castles is more commercial with a funky rythm,that is a contrast with the rest of the album,but depend the tastes,because is good for people that prefer a more light music,but all the rest of tracks are very progressives with good demonstrations of skill in each instrument...I give 4 stars because ,is impossible give 4.75 stars
