5 stars This album is an excellent jazz-rock fusion canterbury record! Alan Gowen left National Health in 1977 to expand his more jazzy, but not less progressive , approach of music than Dave Stewart.

The result is a pure bomb for the progaddict : an intelligent, extremely subtile combination between jazz (precursor of certain pat metheny stuff but with complexier melodies and harmonies) and canterbury.

All materials are complex and really written. Textures are all different. The end of the first piece is a must for complex prog lovers. Th sound of Gowen is incredibily dreamy and spacy. Phil Lee is precise and polyvalent (between mahavishnu's stuff and pat metheny). His accoustical interlude is wonderfull! Trevor Tomkins reveals is science of drums coloration. Hugh Hopper is never interfering with Gowen and Lee's predominance and stays on the second plane.

The most impressive with this album is that it could have been recorded now. It was futuristic music from the seventies, which will still be futuristic in 20 years. Proggers, this album is an ultimate classic!!
