2 stars Just read a few of the other reviews and I think I see a lot of what I am about to report in other peoples views. I bought this CD ages ago and I have only just got around to giving it a bit of ear-time. I hope the other efforts from this band are better because this is a very flat, lifeless and (in parts) uber boring. Even lots of mellotron do not save this from the lambasting it's going to get. The only track worth listening too is the final instrumental, which in itself sort of collects all th little good bits from the rest of the CD and plays em back. The track is called "A Long Finish". The 2nd track isn't too bad once you have got past the monotonous vocals, however the guitarist/keys man just isn't up to the standard required to get past a two star CD with this effort - The lyrics and singing are horrendous and the sixteen minute track seemed to last for a week!!!! The rest of the tracks are either pointless ballads or pointless short instrumentals - MUST DO BETTER 2.4 stars rounded down I think.....
