4 stars This is definitely an overlooked gem in the annals of progressive music. Like many of the reviewers have noted, there are strong comparisons to the sound of VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR or KING CRIMSON, but the music does have an identity of its own. Given the fact that keyboards are absent from most tracks, it is up to the horns and strings to flesh out the sound, which they do marvelously. My only criticism would be the vocals, the singer took some getting used to for me. He kinda sounds like a British Isles version of Geddy Lee. Highlights include the title track, which melts down into a nutty coda that will have fans of the two aforementioned bands smiling; and 'I Could Never Be A Soldier' which at times veers off into territory not unlike CARAVAN, and the end guitar jam is a dead ringer for WISHBONE ASH. All in all, a great addition to the collection of any fan of progressive music.
