5 stars I have been MB fan since the very early days....and I would cast my vote for this being their most consistent and progressive effort to date.

I was lucky enough to catch the Moodies live in Chicago in 1981....and they did a wonderful job...This music holds up as well in live atmospher as it does on the disc....BTW...I also caught them live in 1978 and 1983.

As far as anything that followed....This album still holds as their most consistent...They didn't get into that pop synth thing they attempted (and failed miserably at) on a couple of their latter discs.

I agree that the 1980's was a vast asteland for prog wave was headling the bill everywhere...Anybody who knows music and who's been in the music habit for many decades, will tell you...Music goes thru fads and stages....Everything comes back around..eventually.

A final thought...I would recommend this disc to anybody unfamiliar with the MB's.. It is truly a testament to their continuing musical prowness in a very fickle and finicky industry, where even your most devoted audience and turn on you and become your wost critic .
