2 stars After going through great lengths to acquire a vinyl copy of this record, I am sorry to report that it does not live up to the promise of Financial Tycoon and Amoc.

While it has much of the fantastic musicianship of the previous records, it is so 80's in it's execution that it becomes quite a generic enterprise. Soprano sax, overproduced drums, scorching guitars. You can feel the members of the band REACHING for a more commercial sound but their taste is too weird to nail it.

Side one feels very much like a new agey, fusion soundtrack for an 80's film.

Side Two gets a bit closer to the energy of the earlier records with Future Tango being a real standout. However, one has to get past that New Age production to hear the creativity that worked so well before.
