4 stars Well among many derivative bands in the vein of GENESIS and YES, in the course of late seventies, this one is the most interesting and personal too, along with MIRTHRANDIR (even though probably a 3 stars score for Babylon should be righter)... Actually "Babylon" is worth 4 stars at most, because there's not an immediate sense of melody, that is a refrain which can be sung by everyone (this is the difference between the majority of the derivative bands and the early GENESIS). Nevertheless its importance (a sort of "ante-litteram" new progressive wave genre, which will make the fortune of bands such as MARILLION some years later!!) and influence too, is very strong still today. Even though the syncopated singing and the sounds produced by the analogical keyboards as well, are not always convincing. It never minds, because this album- also as an historical document about the best 70's US derivative bands- is recommended anyway!!
