2 stars Faceless pop rock with prog flourishes that follows the formula Genesis used for success during this period. Of course Genesis had by far the better musicians but Kayak, as they always do, give it their best go. There are some titles I wouldn't mind hearing again, but the rest is bland. None of the instruments really stand out and the vocals pretty much follow the same formula. The harmonies aren't really that prevalent, there's little mellotron and the hooks don't dig in. Sometimes I like these later seventies records where the band morphs their prog sound to fit the times. Camel's Breathless comes to mind. This one, however, can go back on the scrap heap.
