4 stars With Jon Anderson's other albums in the 90's relying heavily on world music influences, I expected this to be a heavily Latin American Indian flavored album, with Jon Anderson's style adding spice. But in fact, this one turned out to be mainly a Jon Anderson album, with a bit of Latin American Indian influence.

The high-points here are Keith Richard Heffner's grandiose keyboard orchestrations. The intrumental portions of the songs are deep and inventive, giving this prog listener a highly enjoyable experience.

The songs with Latin American Indian roots are not bad either, with Jon taking native rhythms and chants and expanding them into lush musical journeys.

If you like Peter Gabriel's world music based albums, you will certainly enjoy this one.
