3 stars This is one of those albums you wonder why is rated so highly. It starts off well with Memory Lain, but the 2nd half of that song(Headloss) reminds me of the Partridge family playing something proggy. I really like the Memory Lain part and I just fade it out after about 5 minutes. Hoedown is a good tune but the next few tunes bring the album down. The dog, Surprise and Cthlu are mainly blande album fillers but Cthlu ends well. There's nothing really nice about the acoustics they just sound a bit plain and Pyes voice isn't sounding as good as it did on Waterloo or later albums. The band obviously miss Richard Sinclairs melody. It's alright is the best song on the album and L'audberge starts off well but drags on a bit. The bonus track Dereks long thing would have been a better choice than Surprise and Dog imo. The remaster is worth 4 stars almost but without Dereks long thing it's just over 3 star. I'll give it 3 to drag it's PA rating closer to 4 ;)
