Prog Reviewer
2 stars The best songs in this album are "When the heart rules the mind", "Hackett to Bits", "Imagining", "Toe the Line" and "Sketches in the sun". This was one of the albums of 1986 which showed Progressive musicians playing music more oriented to pop rock and for the Radio (others were: the overrated Peter Gabriel with "So"; Emerson, Lake & Powell`s album; Genesis`s "Invisible Touch"; Kansas`"Power"). Both guitarists play very good, but I don`t like Max Bacon`s vocals very much. The production is noisy, with a lot of echoes added. The songs which are nearer to progressive music are "Hackett to Bits" (which is an abridged version of Hackett`s "Please don`t touch" song from his album of the same name), the superb acoustic guitar intro to "Imagining" (played by Hackett alone), and "Imagining". "When the heart rules the mind" has a very good part played with acoustic guitars. If some people blamed Phil Collins for making commercial music, I think that he wasn`t alone in those days.Even the overrated Gabriel, GTR and others were doing the same things.
