4 stars This was the first neo-prog I had ever heard . It was back in 1983 and I first thought this was some ill timed early Genesis rip-off. But after listening to it over and over with sort of a perverse guilty pleasure fascination, it grew one me. At the time nobody was supposed to like this sort of stuff as the post-punk style fascists had declared this kind of music unacceptable. Well screw those long gone idiots; this is a time piece that still stand up. I give this four stars and I also disagree with all of those who savagely maligned Mick Pointer's drumming. On the album itself it sounds fine to my ears.
