90125 marked the return of John Anderson and original keyboardist Tony Kaye, as well as welcoming new guitarist Trevor Rabin to the lineup.

The Good: This album is used to taking a good old beating as its generally considered an abomination within the prog community. However, whilst it does show a far more commercial approach, and is certainly less progressive than their previous work, none of this stops it from being one of the best pop-rock albums ever written. It certainly has stood the test of time where so many others of this era have fallen into obscurity. Sure the songs are cheesy as hell, but that doesn't stop them from being both catchy and, to a certain extent, interesting.

The Bad: The album's final track is probably its weakest.

The Verdict: Progressive pop's finest hour.

Starhammer | 2/5 |
