From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars All the while in the early to mid-70s listening to the likes of Yes, ELP, KC and Genesis and so forth (Hell! To show my diversity, I was also listen to Allman Bros., Lynyrd Skynyrd and the rest of redneck rock as well) along with the fusion of MAHA, RETURN and WEATHER, I managed to pretty much ignore a certain little Canadian hard-rock band completely. It really wasn't 'til this album I started to notice these guys were picking-up on the previous said artists. Alex was getting more into Steve Howe/John McLaughlin styles, I can certainly hear Geddy going for Chris Squire and Stanley Clarke bass lines and Neal was just all over Bruford, Cobham and Lord knows what else. The best part was they just got better all along. While not the most original artist of the 70s and 80s, they certainly maintained a duriability unlike most of their counter-parts like BOC, KANSAS, STYX and the rest of the psuedo-prog groups of the late 70s.
