4 stars A classic 90's R.I.O album and the first album of that type of music I ever listened to. Rarely complexity has been so accessible. The complexity is here to serve the songs and not the contrary. The first two tracks both around 4 minute despite still being complex could almost be broadcasted on commercial radio (almost I wrote:-) without listener calling the station asking what's happening. The singer Deborah Perris has a great and attractive voice which I think explain in parts the accessibility of the album. The track "Les Etudes d'Orgasm" is 14 minutes of excitement, the music going to the craziest circus music I ever heard. The last track is the darkest of the album and probably the least accessible "Kingdom Come" with a atmospheric ending with dissonant sax All the tracks are at least good and some really good: "Les Etudes d'Orgasm", "This Weird Wind", "Dead Silence". If you don't know R.I.O.and looking for an album to start with; this is the one.

4 stars: Excellent addition to any R.I.O or general prog music collection
