3 stars After the 1980's Turn of the friendly card, this is the most progressive output of Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons. Catchy poppy tracks are not as aggressive as few years ago. I have the impression that both APP's masterminds decided to create more solid work of challenging and memorable music without any pressure to sell. The album clocks at 74 minutes but still, it has enough to offer - both guys had enough time to recover and collect new ideas. Album feels like a collection of various tracks, moods and singers although there is a concept behind.

"The Nirwana principle" is the track with the motive that gets repeated throughout the album. "Freudiana" is also one of the main music motives with great melody - and subtle melancholy in the vein of APP. "I am a mirror" is a catchy track reminiscent of previous golden era. The ballad slot is filled with a high quality "Dora" sung by legendary voice of Eric Woolfson. Another ballad "There but for the grace of God" brings the great voice of John Miles. "Far away from home" brings me the Christmas spirit each time a hear it. One a more progressive note, listen to "The ring" was more interesting instrumentation. "Don't let the moment pass" is a symphonic track that is unusual for APP.

Overall, this is a well structured and crafted piece of progressive pop.
