2 stars Gold Afternoon Fix was after Starfish and Heyday another one which failed to hit my attraction. Its production is quite poor and all the songs are rather mediocre.

The opener Pharoah is a slightly dramatic sounding song but not very much convincing. Metropolis has a catchy chorus and some fine guitar and actually is a potential airplay hit which did not work out either. Monday Morning is, at least for me, the nicest one of the album, but without any relation to Prog at all. Russian Autumn Heart, Essence and You're Still Beautiful are just ordinary Indie Rock songs, not bad, but not exciting as well. Disappointment is another very mellow song with some spanish-type acoustic guitar, the second of my favorites on this album. Very beautiful, but for sure not progressive! About Tracks 10 to 12 there's nothing worth mentioning. The last one Grind is my third favorite and one which is a bit outstanding of the rest with a nice acoustic piano part.

Altogether there are three songs on this album I quite like, but overall it's not really a very good album I have to say. I'd recommend it only to die-hard fans and everyone else I'd like to advice to start with Priest=Aura and Forget Yourself if you like to get a real good impression of the band.
