5 stars I'd kind of let this album fall off my radar despite the fact that I played it to death in the 70s. But now I'm back to it and I am in disbelief--in awe! The sound! The beauty! The hooks! The creativity and diversity represented here. As I listen to the album, song by song, I am blown away by the fact that I find the music so familiar, so dear to me, so polished and that I find so little fault or flaw to it. Nearly every song is worthy of a 10/10 or 9/10 rating. This album is a masterpiece! Yes, the songs are a little more pop-oriented, radio friendly (which is undoubtedly why so many of them became minor hits), but the structures, sounds and vocal performances are so good! Who would've thought that that little Scottish band PILOT (whose 1975 minor hit "Magic" got them some notice) would produce three individuals that would become players in the crossover prog world: bass player David Paton (by way of the BAY CITY ROLLERS), drummer Stuart Tosh, and guitarist Ian Bairnson--all with Alan Parsons and Kate Bush and Tosh with 10CC?
