Prog Reviewer
3 stars This album is a combination of Pop Rock songs with orchestral arrangements and some Prog Rock arrangements. It is enjoyable and "light". As always, Parsons and Woolfson have very good musicians and singers to record their songs, and Parsons produced an album with songs "very clearly" recorded and mixed. "Lucifer" is a very good instrumental song. The other instrumental song, "Secret Garden", is one of my favourites, with good orchestral arrangements, and some very good vocals sung without lyrics. From the rest of the songs, my favourites are: "Don`t Hold Back" (sung by Clare Torry), "Damned if I Do" (sung by Lenny Zakatek), "Winding Me Up" (sung by Chris Rainbow, it also has a very good orchestral arrangement with "classical music influences"), and the best song of this album IMO, a Pop Rock ballad called "If I Could Change Your Mind" (sung by Lesley Duncan). This last song has very good orchestral arrangements and very good lead vocals. It could have been a hit single, but I don`t know if this song was released as a single. In general, this is a good album, but more oriented to Pop Rock than Prog Rock.
