When I was younger I had quite a hunger For technically competent song,

So one day my mentor - A dude I lament for - Played me this after a bong.

He wasn't quite sure what I would think And frankly neither was I ;

After all, no guitar? No, that won't do, I'd miss that electrical cry.

But surely enough, without Holdsworth's muse, And Jobson no slouch at the helm

This follow-up works, John Wetton berserk And Bozzio right in his realm.

The title is heavy, layered by Eddie And Terry's aggressive on snare,

John's in fine voice, his timing a marvel, The sound a touch pop if they dare.

'Rendezvous' rises from romantic lines Built around Jobson's piano,

The next cut's a blast, aggressive and fast-- Wetton's voice contra soprano.

Cesar is fine, if a bit plodding, 'Nothing to Lose' rather nice

Though the specter of Asia foresees euthanasia And Prog's diminution enticed.

Finally a classic, there is not much doubt ; A brilliant group effort of talent and stout.

'Carrying No Cross' was a kicker, a timekeeper's ticker Setting the bar far too high

And in all its glory, we see prog rock's story, Slated and ready to die
