2 stars This album has little to share with any prog feeling. Far from this.

It is just another way to discover some fine rock ballads that DO remind of some great English band I've forgotten the name of ("Knee Deep in Love"). Apart from this very good song, there is hardly anything to recommend out of here.

Some good and pastiche work. Probably. But no more.

I've been quite comprehensive with the band in terms of reviews of their earlier albums; but this one is just a poor one. Nothing as "Hope" can be reminded in here: psychedelia is gone, creativity is gone, melodies are gone.

This album is just a collection of some average pop songs indeed (wherever it is relevant). With no thrill unfortunately. And that's a pity. Because "Klaatu" were able to develop some fine and melodic rock songs in the middle seventies. They were even able to compete with the great "10CC", once in a while.

This album brings them definitely into the average category ("Set The World On Fire"). And it is not the disgusting "Set The World On Fire" which is just a poor complaint for "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" from whom you might know which will turn their music into better territories.

This album is frankly a poor one. Not a one star one, but I am damned adventurous to rate it with two stars. Believe me. Just listen to the awful disco "Dog Star". I am not sure that this album deserves a two star rating. Anyway...
