4 stars For me personally, this album is where the "thief" begins, which I, like many, love. In my subjective opinion, the recording completes the cycle of early albums, which did not differ in interest, depth, or proper quality of music! If you are not a "bullheaded" TPT fan, then everything before this album is not worth digging. Only here the creative growth of the group begins, although so far it is expressed in simple, straightforward tracks, but they suddenly feel the coming volume and scope. "Run A Mile" is a "smash-hit". It is typical for the early TPT with lingering vocal intonations. An interesting track with bright emotional transitions. "Wait" is music reminiscent of the later work of TPT. "Little Man" is something like a mature Opeth or even Katatonia, only with a more pronounced vocal component. In general, there are lot of tracks, and the album is pretty smooth. For me, this is not quite the TPT that I start to like from the next album (Whаt Have We Sown). But this record is important for me as the starting point for the band's creativity, because it is from here that a series of cool albums begins - for years to come! Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Front cover! Just a swing shot with an infrared filter. On the one hand, nothing special, on the other, why not? There is something in this, as well as in the whole album. So far, this is just something that blossomed on the subsequent recordings of the most worthy of the bands.
