3 stars This is a pretty good Wishbone Ash album in the same style as No Fire Without Smoke from 1978. Just like on that album, several songs remind me a bit of Dire Straits, only much better. Both of these albums also end with a two-part composition. Don't be fooled by this, however. This is not really progressive rock. Just very good and sophisticated hard rock music; well written, well performed, well recorded and well produced.

There are more keyboards on this album than on most Wishbone Ash albums, but only ever in the background - never as a lead instrument. The bass guitar is often loud and bottom. Especially on the Hole In My Heart (Parts 1), where the bass almost has that wonderful Chris Sqiure sound.

The electric guitars are very well played (as on most Wishbone Ash albums).

Apart from the very good Hole In My Heart suite, there is really no need to mention specific songs, everything is good but nothing is outstanding.

Not the ultimate place to start, but one of the better Wishbone Ash albums I have heard so far.
