Prog Reviewer
3 stars This was an instrumental rock 'supergroup' that had very little to do with the original Colosseum.Although both bands were formed by the brilliant drummer Jon Hiseman, instead of Greenslade and co we have the 'heavier' talents of Gary Moore (guitar) and Don Airey (keyboards) in tow.The result is power packed rock that at times is sublime.The best tracks are 'The Scorch' and 'Intergalctic Strut' which are as good as any intstrumental prog released in the seventies.Unforunately there are some weaker tracks like 'Lament' and the dreadful 'Rivers' which drags it down somewhat.If ever a band needed a compilation then this is it.The record company should put the best tracks from their 3 albums onto one decent album and have done with it.But until that happens you will have to search the bargain bins for this if you want to hear 'Intergalctic Strut' (and you will believe me!)
