2 stars The final Fruupp album went the same way were their masters Genesis went: Down the road to nodding popland.

The album starts promising. But I soon get the vibes I got from the Genesis albums post Duke. Those are not good vibes. Fruupp has to all extent left the prog rock world behind here and gone for stardom as a middle of the road pop band. There was a lot of Irish pop bands at that time with the same sound and the same kind of pop music. There are some hints of previous great prog rock, but they are far between. Most of the music here is simple sophisticated pop with a driving piano and some guitars. This is the stuff you find in the cabaret clubs. That's probably where this band ended up too. The vocals are pretty painful. The songs is anonymous. It is sad to see this band sink this low. The last half of this album is really painfully to witness. Pomp pop and cabaret music.

A small star for the few remnants of the great band Fruupp was on their second album. This album is not in the same league though and a real flop in my view. Sad.
