3 stars A nice wee album. Just like the Beatles did in '69 with 'Abbey Road' - another album that had no direction -just great tunes after "sergeant'-. Gryphon saved all their best tunes and odds and ends for this final release in '77. The complexity of 'Red Queen' has vanished, and in it's place is something completely different. At this time punk had kicked in so in a way it does sound hopelessly dated but some parts are superb - particularly the drum sequence on 'Flash in the Pantry' which borders on Adam and the Ants. Don't go there 'Ant' fans as it immediately morphs into prog city. A difficult album to rate as they clearly have all their faculties together - it's just that... prog sounded tired at this point. Tired and irrelevant. The late 70's was a time of rapidly changing genres and unfortunately Gryphon got hit hard in the face along with many other bands.
