4 stars < This disc was really a great, and positive surprise for me. Just before I've just listened the classical 1st album of Atomic Rooster (Atomic Rooster), and found it very eclectic , hardly understandeable. Contrary, the music of the Headline News is matured, written in a consistent style. Vincent Crane's organ and piano play is really excellent and gives a very fine base under the vocal -even if he sings alone or with female backing vocals (Land of Freedom, Machine). > < A special value of the music is the very characteristic bass, leads a bit to the direction of jazz-rock. Together with the smooth percussions, the rhytm section raises the album to the highest peaks of the prog rock history. > < The only reason why I could not rank the album as a five stars one is the relatively weak guitar play. Sometimes I miss somehow a bit more characteristic guitar for emphasizing, highlighting the main themes. Until the 9th song maybe you can't perceive the lack of the guitar, but when you can recognize the sound of David Gilmour's guitar (who is a guest player of the album) at the 9th piece -"Time"-, you will agree with me.> < Finally I really don't understand why the album i's almost undiscovered by the prog rock lovers, since the music is very high-level, and enjoyable.
