3 stars The incorporation of Patric Moraz on the keyboards, after the departure of Rick Wakeman more dedicated for those years to his personal projects, and probably also not so in accordance with the direction of the band since Tales From Topographic Oceans, made it stay the progressive character of the group with a different personal label and make the 3 songs that compose it are good enough to meet the challenge.

To highlight the end of Gates Of Delirium, where the almost 6 minutes of Soon's grandeur and calm are the best of the album, along with Howe's guitar solo of more than 2 minutes in Sound Chaser, which shows us in great it forms its virtuosity. Despite being a very respectable album, I recognize that I have a weakness for the value of Wakeman and his contribution to the greatness of the group, and I feel that this contribution was absent and it shows. It is not one of my favorite albums despite recognizing its great musical value.
