From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars This is my favorite of all Brand X albums, because it has more character and quirkiness whereas the others are more generic 'fusion' albums. This one is a return to progressive forms, in Symphonic and Canterbury modes and there are even some moments reminiscent of Genesis and Yes. Not bad for 1979, when everyone was running away from prog as if it were the plague. The music is fresh, original, adventurous and complex. Collins is in top form and has made some important contributions here - "...And So To F" is a great song which he featured in his solo tours for a while. It a pity that it came out at a time when prog rock has lost its popularity, otherwise it would have fared better among prog fans. Great stuff - highly recommended if you like Symphonic and Canterbury and OF COURSE if you like Genesis. A Must.
