3 stars Often discarded as a failure, I don't judge this album very far below the other early albums. The 20 minute song-cycle that made up side two of the original album is not in the same league as 2112, but still it has its fair share of interesting parts. Bastille Day is a very immediate and steady opening track, not of the roaring intensity of Anthem but still, fun enough. I never cared much for Lakeside Park or Going Bald, but immediately after, the high point of the album announces itself: "The Necromancer", a song that seemingly never made it into their live set or onto compilations but that I regard as one of their best of the early years.
