4 stars I believe that, judging by the small number. of reviews related to this disk, that he is little known... and I find a waste. Although it is not so well recorded like "Garden Sheed", I consider it a disk (musically speaking)) at least close of that and that it deserved to be knowner than seems. As soon as it begins the audition, a resonant avalanche falls on the listener with a theme that in a lot reminded me GREENSLADE and little later it comes a slower passage than it sounds like GENTLE GIANT soon afterwards YES, that everything "crowned" with a brilliant percussion with tubular bells and everything returns to the initial theme to close the track. The next track (2), it begins in a way totally different, with a theme that seems to resist to "enter in scene." Finally it appears an outstanding bass that it drives a melody that has some FRUPP and to proceed (in the middle of the music) it presents a type of "intermezzo" that brings the memory the initial compasses of "The Gates of Delirium." The third track is probably the weakest moment of the albun. The fouth track can be divided in two very different moments, the first brings a percussion section in the best form of Bill Bruford's drums and a guitar in Steve Howe's style and the second a theme that mixes YES and GENESIS with a keyboard solo to the style Tony Banks. The fifth track is clearly inspired in GENESIS, however some sung passages me they reminded another great britanic band THE BEATLES!!! The last track causes me the sensation of being really a farewell theme, not only of the albún, but unhappily of the own band in itself. My raute is 4 stars !!!
