3 stars In Ambrosia's second release, we already see the decline of music quality and for the most part, their departure from really great progressive music. It really is a shame that they were striving more for commercialism in this album, because, if they had followed in the greatness of their debut album, Ambrosia could have been a progressive rock band to contend with. The debut album was amazing and I consider it essential. This album is more of hit and miss. There are a few high points but the low points seem to outweigh them. I'm sure Ambrosia was trying to gain a larger audience, which may have happened in the short run, but as far as the long run, it did nothing but damage their reputation. In fact, I believe the contrary to what most other people are saying and that is, Life Beyond L.A. was a better album than this. Okay so maybe LBL.A. wasn't as progressive, but there are some prog elements and they don't seem to be as forced as they are on SINT. I think that might be part of why I don't enjoy this album as much, it seems that the best parts of the album are more forced in their attempt to outdo the debut album, which didn't happen here.
