1 stars There is absolutely no reason to build a cult around this album. Some basic rock tunes is all that you'll grab here. Prog is of course alien here and even if the opener could have left some hope, there won't be a lot of good moments available on this recording.

This work is a combination of pop/AOR and below average hard-rock. Not a big deal, right? Some fine opening numbers ('' White Flags'', '' Dancing In The Ruins'') are followed by one of the worst AOR stuff ('' Make Rock Not War'').

But to be honest, from then on, this album is a painful exercise to listen to. Weak melodies, absent guitar solo: this is what you'll have to bear ('' Spy In The House''). This album is just a collection of very average rock tunes that don't have their place on this site.

Trying to find prog elements in here is kind of looking for the Holy Grail. You won't find them here. The unpleasant goes along with the awful ('' Beat 'Em Up''). I am looking quite hard which track could lead to a two star rating.

Even if a song like '' When The War Comes'' is alright, it wouldn't provide the lowest rating. I can't help: this is not a good album AT ALL. Not even average to tell you the truth. The weak closing track is just confirming the whole feeling.

One little star? Yes! This is appropriate. The worse BÖC album so far. As far as I'm concerned, I would stay away from this recording.
