From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars 01. Movement For The Common Man Slightly based in The Fanfare For The Common Man by Aaron Copland (5 years later that the E, L & P would make a version), begins almost like a Hard / Prog, with the voice of torn and good guitar riffs, and interesting with a chorus low footprint animal. The soils also appear at any moment. Part of percussion with electronics and strange 'sounds' everywhere, full of low end, wha guitar and Hammond eating loose. In a third part a kind of monologue on the edge of the road, same type ride, which in my opinion is one of the coolest things I've ever heard, I imagine all the scenes and characters in my head, which is excellent! As would be the third part is yes we enter into a total air E, L & P, with melodies and percussion timbres, and then more Progressive Rock baby! Guitars, and many keyboards and a great vocal melody, the kind that I sing with (pardon me, I could not put the letters in the file, but the site of them has the lyrics). There are many different parts of the song, which together form a piece of extremely good taste and intelligence, without a doubt an epic forget! 02. Right Away A beautiful song with the refrain gummy and very good, those that play on any radio, but does not ring because the radios for this charge (PQP, and look who is granting public radio!) Good guitar break.

03. What Has Come Between Us Great piano and entry of many agreements with all playing together, but in reference to the keyboard. Then the guitars with melodies and a chorus duplicate very nice, highlight the battery of John Panozzo played very well and sealed. The party is almost entirely instrumental E, L & P (if not the guitar break).

04. Best Thing Guitar, vocal melody and a la The Who! Several vocal singing in chorus, low timbre with that very cool, and relatively heavy. Very good.

05. Quick Is The Beat Of My Heart Riff primed, the whole HAMMONDS, voice and a guitar eternal 'frantic' the fund, both the band's guitarists James Young and John Curulewski not kidding they know there are really what to do with the two guitars (as opposed to bands like Iron Maiden for example). Final horrifying, infinite echo and the beginning of a 'prayer'.

06. After You Leave Me A riff to the Deep Purple, but deeper, a keyboard nice beautiful voice, beautiful melodies and make the song a rare case of a Progressive strangely different. Vocal end very nice.

In summary the final balance is very good, a short disc (as all of the 70 disc), but in extremely good taste, we should hear more stuff.
