3 stars GALAHAD's music is not overly progressive; they do, however, have a knack for catchy tunes that are miles ahead the best pop songs. Despite their poppish airs, I never tire of hearing them and I'm glad I have this album in my collection. There is some neat stuff here. "Aries" is a bombastic rocker and a fine album opener. "One for the Record" is a sort of nostalgic homage to PETER GABRIEL's live performances in the heydays of GENESIS (although no names are named, 70's proggers will recognize this instantly from the lyrics) - a little cheesy, perhaps, but moving. "Room 801" seems to be a favourite of many a GALAHAD fan but it is unfortunately nothing compared to what the band offers on their most recent album "Year Zero". "The Ceiling Speaks" is yet another nice piece of nostalgia but perhaps a little too 'neo-prog cliché' for my tastes. Finally, I must admit that hearing CAMEL's "Lady Fantasy" and GENESIS' "Chamber of 32 Doors" not only brought back some fond memories, but the tunes are both professionally done and executed with lots of heart. As usual, STU NICHOLSON provides some vibrant vocals and the sound quality (which is always a little shaky on GALAHAD albums) is not so bad here. For some unpretentious, good, clean fun, give this album an ear.
