4 stars One of the last typical progressive rock attempts by AP. The album start greets us by brilliant warm emotional electric guitar, piano and synth lines a la Genesis.

The suite called "Scottish Suite" is an excellent composition consisting of sonically different parts, acoustic ones being also very inspired. The first and four parts are dynamic and belong to my favourites. "Lindsay" may be a love track derived by the name and gentle piano notes. "K2" may be a premonition of the heavy-synth "1984" from the next year, however the textures are calm. The symphonic spirit is represented by "Heavens" with great synth chord sequence.

The remaining tracks are either acoustically guitar-based or piano-based but always peaceful.

3.5 stars deserved and I round it up to 4 this time.
