4 stars Delightfully insane, eruptive violins are a hallmarks of Cross' solo albums. The former member from King Crimson tends to unleash surprising and very satisfying runs that are truly "one of a kind". Not sure about how he ended up in Jazz-Rock/Fusion as he rarely sounds anything jazzy, more like Eclectic with a very slight touch of Avant Rock.

Indeed, it is a rocking album with pretty good tunes well performed by all. The vocals are not so great, though. Echoes of Roger Waters, Greg Lake in an uninspired moment spring to mind, but there are some better bits on the side. But the highlight is firmly on those unique violin runs.

Suffice to say that Cross' works in general align well with the 1973-75 period of KC. Almost like a continuation of "Lark's Tongues In Aspic" - if only a bit wilder still. Highly recommended.
