3 stars Not quite as good as the predecessor and the last of his good album for quite a while. I may seem severe on him but a lot of the stuff is expandable on this one especially on side 2. If it weren't for the opening The Steppes, this would be rather weak. There are too many weird/silly tracks (especially on side 2) that make this album a relatively difficult album to listen to.

This gets another half-star because of my respect for Hackett, but beware of the general overly enthusiast opinions of over-appreciative fans that have a tendency to look at this album with its excellent processor.
