3 stars Well it looks like I will be the minority once again here. And to avoid a genocided minority , I rounded up to the third star but I really think it does not deserves more. I found this album totally lacking inventivity and personality , a typical product of those years. When I listen to it Eloy comes to mind but also mostly neo-prog groups that would come much later Pendragon and Arena ) but also Novalis around those years (by 79 , Novalis was only the shadow of its former self). As you can see, not much to inspire me!

The side-long suite title track is, of course , the main course but has "deja-vu et entendu " feeling and if impeccably played , it certainly adds nothing new to the prog cause. I have a gripe agaionst the guitar 9maybe not present enough ) and the KB (sounding already too 80's-ish) and the singing is unremarkable. Side 2 does not fare any better, with the track that has given the name to the group being slightly more interesting than the rest. Again , the musicianship and execution are not at cause here , simply that the group seems to have little to say!

Every time I hear the name of this band , I cannot help but think of those cheap train ride novels and compare it to the classic novels. This is enjoyable but throw away after use . Actually, I feel a sense of relief when this record is over.
