3 stars This album is plain rock essence. Some fine compositions are featured, that's for sure. Now, to decide if this album is prog or not is quite easy an easy choice to make?

The best song from this offering as far as I am concerned is the great "Stand And Deliver" which features some gorgeous guitar play like during the great old days. This is a fantastic rock moment. Guitar lovers: be ready for a great trip. Almost as great as "Southern Man" from whom you might have heard. THE highlight from this work for sure.

Most of the songs from this album are quite decent and hold some great rocking moments ("Anger In Harmony"), not quite in line with your expectations with pure prog music but quite pleasant to be honest.

This last tune is rather harmonious and gentle. Is it necessary to add that the guitar break which covers the second half of the song is awesome? I guess not!

The last two songs are rather conventional even if the early moments of "Like A Child" has a definite early "Santana" feel. But most of this song sounds quite AOR: fortunately guitar is brilliant (as usual).

I will be rather conventional with my rating. Three stars. A good rock album by all means.
