3 stars This is another album of guitar heavy jazz rock fusion by Gamelon. On this one, they re-added second guitarist, George Puleo, and this adds quite a bit of power to the lineup. However, like the previous album, the songs, for the most part don't range very far from the arena rock side of fusion.

There are some high points. The guitar solos throughout are great. That alone would be a good reason to purchase this album. But the best song is You Still Have Time, which sounds remarkably like early Kansas, both in composition and performance. That effect is helped along by Kansas-like vocals, and Geoffrey Fitzhugh Perry's violin. Another nice song is Flyby which features some impressive chapman stick work by drummer Ted Reinhardt.

Like their other albums, this is not bad, but it could be much better.
