3 stars This was one of those rare interesting CDs I received as a promo during the eighties in my record store. And I'm surprised to find it here. I thought I had the only copy. And judging by the number of reviews, I may be correct.

The music is a mixture of rock, almost pop-ish at times, some jazz fusion, some RIO, and even a bit of folk. Lyrically, it's very Canterbury like, blending wry wit with free form thoughts and almost non-sequitors.

My favorite track is Match Girl, which sounds similar to some of the Allan Holdsworth songs with vocals.

The recording quality of my CD (the original Antilles release, that has a different cover than the one shown here) is not great. The drums are not crisp, and the whole albums sounds alightly washed out.
