2 stars I have owned this lp since I started looking for progressive rock. At first I didn't like at and now, four years later, I still don't. The sound of the guitars is great, the drums are nice and the additional senthizisers seem to survived the test of time, but... The vocals are still totally disgusting, as if it is powermetal. The composition skill are quite low here. While Tom Sawyer has it's moment (though I greatly dislike the vocals on the 'what you say... ' part) other songs don't seem to have any progressive elements, exept for the progressive sound of the recording. Red Barchetta is one of these horrible metalisized popsongs I mention here.

Now I do understand that a lot of people are going to be insulted if I give this just two stars, but they will apriciate me being honest (I surely hope so). I can't state that there is just one thing I do find interesting about this record. Maybe the riff of Limelight could be called nice.

Two stars.
