Prog Reviewer
3 stars Well, this was obviously the very first record featuring guitar-synthesizer and alone for this fact supposed to be a rather eponymous one and actually it starts very much promising with the first two tracks being really great symphonic ones with a very much space rocking sound. But after those ones there are a couple of very much mediocre songs with some symphonic or sometimes jazzy touch (like #7) which are quite rocking, but as well rather pop-ish. Nothing really special. Track #8 which is an instrumental one apart of some short wordless vocal parts features a quite impressive drum solo, but apart of this it's not a really great one as well. Then there is still a more mellow song and another quite rocking one which is not that bad but as well not a real highlight.

So as a summary this album has a few great moments like the first two songs and maybe the drum solo in track #8 but else fails to offer me much interesting or attractive I've to say. Still good enough to give 3 stars!
