3 stars 01. Danger Money A shadowy keyboard with the battery, several synthesizers along the way, starts apocalyptic. Vocals well placed on the melody of keyboards (which dominates the opening of the disc), the verse is sung upon a time quebradíssimo, and then we remember the voice of Wetton (Asia). Soils and the style of Keith Emerson (Emerson, Lake & Palmer) and many Vocalizations along the music.

02. Rendezvous 6:02 Piano melody and low making (somewhat broken), and the voice of Wetton (very nice by the way) enter on the scene winning the spotlight. There is a kind of balance the track until two minutes early reminding a bit of a bay. After entering a tunnel near the memories and images (at least for me) where I remembered a lot and pesei enough. Some go around Vocalizations verses on top of a line of low sensational (which is good reading my releases I already noticed that I am always bassist then give special attention to the lines below).

03. The Only Thing She Needs Top of the battery la Neil Peart (Rush), but it is only the beginning because the sequence reminds me of Gentle Giant (and quebradeiras) and then then Genesis for sure, especially the line of battery and timbre. (Our pot of influences that amazing, huh?). I am not exactly sure who sings the backing vocals with John, but surely were excellent in all tracks. This song reminds me a bit what Asia has made some years later (just a little more sophisticated). Among the verses of the various sentences battery Terry show in shape. In the end turned into a 4 / 4 electric very well footprint, the bottom row without equal and the violin solos / keyboard sensational.

04. Caesar's Palace Blues The 'second hand' begins with a title liar (laughter) because it is not a blues, but more an ass of battery, this introduction gives you hear some of guitar chords (which I do not know who he played), and more legal violins are the music while the voice a little torn enter on the scene. The time (for change) could not be more broken. Certainly they did not want to make life easier for anybody who wanted to play the songs on the disc. (more laughter). Final all in 'code' and across the track with many of sensational violins Jobson.

05. Nothing To Lose I guess I was wrong! That comes out in the style of 'Asia' (natural since Wetton was one of the founders of the group), certainly reminded me very much. Trebled the vocals are very nice. I love 'coral'. It has a nice chorus and a solo almost 'disk' which reminded me a sound and I can not remember exactly what. And just to vary the line of low Wetton that part is wonderful. Nothing to lose, nothing to lose, nothing to lose ...

06. Carrying On Cross That would be the epic song of the disc? I have the impression that, yes, and as it is epic all by parties, one by one these parties will become a changing and growing. Starts shy, enigmatic, enter the voice and sings to the heart of people who go to the few among the melody in the ears and minds. When we started to settle in, everything is changing little by little so that no one is traumatized by a sudden change, everything is done to the few and easy, like a bird that constructs its house with branches of trees and the patience of the wise. Behold, but now it's time for change (and even then it is no natural way to realize that), some lights, Keith Emerson again, a melody and it looks amazing and we are only half (battery masterful here). An exclusive party for the piano almost unbelievable change in a rough, the band back many broken and returns and look what we have in 1979 the world was no longer used. Back to the topic and then the beginning, almost a circle vicious, the snake that swallows its own tail.

The disc (and also the band) saw the light of day in a difficult season for the progressive, the end of the 70s. Still the band is great and this disc is certainly well above average.
