4 stars This, UK's first and most significant recording, was somewhat of a beacon in the progressive music wasteland that was 1978. Born from the scraps of King Crimson's RED with the fluid Charlie Parkeresque guitar of Alan Holdsworth filling in for Fripp's more angular voice, and coupled with the youth and imagination of keyboard player/violinist Eddie Jobson. There appeared to be a new opportunity for these creative musicians to elevate their art beyond the pompous artifice of many of their contemporaries. Unfortunately this would only hold up for this one record. In the Dead of Night, and Nevermore are certainly classics, and the album remains essential, but with the departure of Bruford and Holdsworth before follow up Danger Money, the band's promise was never fully realized. If only...
