3 stars Well honestly by regarding of their whole discography, this album is the preferred one - among all their fans - although it's a quite raw LP of hard rock, with some "fusionesque elements", if We consider some breaks through performed at the keyboards (listen to the solos at Fender Rhodes for instance). The main structure is composed by the guitarist, whose job is excellent! Nevertheless - unlike the best Classic Progressive rock stuff - there are not such great interplays with the keyboards or particular surprising strange time signatures. The unique symphonic intro is pretty (a bit in the vein of such material of "UK New Progressive"), and you find it within the first track, along with some guitar solos emulating the best job by Steve HOWE within the title track... instead the style by Jimmy Page during his most acid and faster guitar solos with LED ZEPPELIN, sometimes emerges from his more experimental approach to the music harmony. Their sound anyway will become more "fusionesque" in the next album, while at their debut their imprinting was not completely defined!

Very interesting and not completely essential "Protoprogressive" album!!
