3 stars Hyperborea, the last Virgin release and a mediocre follow up to puzzling White Eagle, there is a distinct soundtrack theme on Hyperborea especially the title track which in many respects was an indication of a more diluted sound in years to come. " No Mans Land" is the quirkiest and most experimental songs on the album with unusual percussive time signatures. The title track is OK, nothing brilliant but about midway through it does break off into some nice keyboard driven melodies. not unlike the soundtrack album Thief. " Cinamon Road" became a popular short live track but nothing to get too excited about. " Sphinx Lightning" is nineteen minutes of pleasant music which has about four varied moods with some nice string arrangments. Again an average album compared to some of their other works. Overall I would say a good work for completionists only. Just...three stars.
