3 stars Some clips from the first track can be heard in the movie "Risky Business" with Tom Cruise. This is a good album but if you want to start off a TD collection this is not the album to get you are better off with Phaedra, which breaks more frontiers than this one does. There is something different about each album and this one sounds almost like asian music in certain places. However, it almost sounds commercial in a way. Not that everything commercial is bad mind you, but when the music starts to lose it's ingenuity you run into the dilemma that while the music is good, it is missing something. In fact that's the problem, it is missing something that the earlier attempts by them had. I like this album, it makes it off my CD shelf occasionally. However, Phaedra, Rubycon, and the "Pink Years" albums make it into the ol' cd player alot more. If you are just buying albums from them, wait to get this one. It's worth having, but not worth having right away. 3.5 stars.
