4 stars Wow, this one had vanished down my memory hole until someone posted something about it recently on this site.

This album is notable for several reasons. It was the last album before a big hiatus. The first and only studio album with Mark O'Connor on violin. The second and last using the abbreviated band name The Dregs. Steve Howe, guesting on a track. And last but least, the first Dregs album to have vocal pieces. One from Santana band at the time, Alex Ligertwood. Patrick Simmons, of Doobie Brothers fame, provides vocals for the second vocal piece.

If you don't like diversity in your prog, steer clear of the Dregs. In addition to the vocal tracks there are the signature prog rock, classical, and bluegrass styled pieces. I don't think the lack of commercial success for this one resulted in the breakup/hiatus, Steve just moved on to Kansas and solo albums.
