5 stars This album is a superb comeback after 13 years in the wilderness. There is not a single weak song with varying styles from epics to rockier numbers to softer ballads. The epic title track ranks among their best and is a cautionary tale about the cold war and the two leaders of the superpowers. Innsomniac is another epic with superb lyrics and inspired base playing from Graeme Murray. The ballad Blood and Roses is well played and understated, very poignant. Man of Principal and Ghosts are both rockier numbers, the latter has a truly superb ending starting with an inspired solo by Niall Matthewson leading a synth solo. Brilliant!!

This album is a must have for all prog lovers.
