Prog Reviewer
2 stars The CD reissue of the original Buk Records vinyl LP has limp, lifeless re-recordings of the best tracks (maybe all of the tracks; as soon as I listened to the two tracks I really liked, I didn't bother with the rest). The bonus tracks were uniformly mediocre. Fortunately, I found a copy of the LP at the Austin Record Covention. I've been trying to sell the CD for years, but I still haven't been able to unload it!!!! The two tracks worth hearing are "The Sun", which is marred by an overblown ending, and the title track, which sounds like a great lost Hackett-era Genesis instrumental track. Other than that, you've got some blatant rip-offs of familiar classical themes and pomp-rock cliches. Three stars for the LP.
