4 stars As everybody else said in their reviews, this is not a prog album but rock with some funky tinges. Cool stuff anyway. In fact there is not a single weak track on it and three of them (Burn, Sail away, Mistreated) I find outstanding. The rest is good, and for the first time since MK I there's an instrumental. Considered by most to be a filler, I always liked the track. It reminds of Jean Michel Jarre (who started two years later). Might just take your Life is also great, the other three tracks (Lay down,stay down; You fool no one, What's going on here) are IMHO not strong enough. So it's four stars for a very good rock album that came close to being a masterpiece.

Favourites: Burn, Sail away, Mistreated.
