2 stars Overrated, over-blown and pompous album. Several nice moments ("Spread Your Wings") but far, faraway from recommendation to serious prog fans. This is mostly an ambitious and pretentious variant of glam rock for kids, even the cover suggests the Marvel Comics type of illustration. T. Rex did it in much more poetic and substantial way, while THE OSMONDS and BAY CITY ROLLERS did it in a simpler and more genuine pop and unpretentious style. And yes, I simply hate to hear "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions".
