3 stars The second album by Todd Rundgren's Utopia brings them one step closer to the lineup that will record all of the rest of the albums to come. On this album, drummer John "Willie" Wilcox joins the fold, leaving only bassist Kasim Sultan to join.

The album itself is something of a mixed bag. The first (and better half), contains all new, and fine fusion based material. The sound quality on this is very good. and the music is sensational. The second half contains some cover songs (Do Ya, originally recorded by ELO, and Something's Coming, from "West Side Story"), plus two songs from Todd's solo albums Heavy Metal Kids and Just One Victory. While the perfomances of these songs are spirited, the sound quality is quite murky. You would think that a supposed studio wizard like Todd Rundgren could have come up with better sounding recordings to release.

Evolver | 3/5 |
