From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Quite an erratic affair, which reminds me of Duke by GENESIS, another album with 50 percent masterpieces and the rest pop tunes of varying quality.

Maybe a third of this album stands up to their earlier albums (including Rain Dances which I am one of the few who rate as high as their first three Decca albums)

"Echoes", the title track and "Summer Lightning" are the best. The rest is decent enough with the exception of "Down on the Farm". Not only is it bad and silly, with a quite nice intro it's also a big disappointment.

This quite rightly deserves three solid stars.

Frasse | 3/5 |
