2 stars One of the veterans of the Norwegian prog rock scene. The drummer was actually the sound-man for Rush when they played Njårdhallen in Norway back in 1978. Which may explain why the bootleg from that gig is so good. This gys was actually one of those who got me into prog in the first place. It is therefore a pity that I do not like this album as much as I would like to. The synths-sound are really bad here. It is plastic all over. The vocals are pretty bad too. The music is like a mix of IQ, Pendragon, Dream Theater and Jethro Tull. But most of it is too much straight forward rock. The songs are too much in the three to five minutes bracket. But some good pieces is scattered among this mediocrity. But there is not enough of them to keep my interest. In an ocean full of salmon, sardines does not suffice.
