Prog Reviewer
4 stars I don't know why so many people say that this is such a masterpiece of progressive rock. Really. This album is the beginning of Triumvirat's downfall towards pop music, and it is still worse than Pompeii, to me, sounding a lot like radio pop than progressive rock. Ok, ok, i must admit it, this album still got some incredible musics, like a day in a life, the history of mystery and panic on 5th avenue, but the rest it kind of boring popish music. Anyway, let me squeeze this album and try to get some goos things out of it:

I believe: here we got a nice balance between pop and prog, like in crime of the century album, from supertramp.

A Day in a Life: amazing prog like Triumvirat used to do.

The History of Mystery: just like a day in a life, amazing prog like triumvirat used to do. This music here is probably the best one of the whole album with great composing like illusions on a double dimple.

A cold old worried lady: pop ballad. Avoid it at all costs.

Panic on 5th Avenue: good music. It could be better written tho, because it looks like it is kind of raw.

Old loves die hard: not so good balance between pop and prog, looking more popish than prog, but it also worth something.

Overall evaluation: this album is surely a step towards pop (or maybe two) but it still have some good musics and is sure worth some consideration because of it.

CCVP | 4/5 |
