2 stars After listening to many other Renaissance albums and tracks I finally decided to give this one a spin. However, it has been a big dissapointment for me. I think that it is just too darn "poppy" for my tastes. The only tunes here I tend to like are "Jeckyl and Hyde" and "Secret Mission". The rest of the album I find either dull or just plain not-good. This album makes me long for "Mother Russia" and "A Song for All Seasons". This band has put out some classic Prog, but, it seems like they have always been at their best with the longer "epics" rather than the shorter tunes such as this album shows. I can only give this 2 stars. Not their best by a LONG shot!
