Prog Reviewer
3 stars Make no mistake, this New Zealand group (recording in Australia) were clearly influenced by Genesis on their one and only album, CLOCKWORK REVENGE. In fact, with the raw twin-guitar attack, the electronic combo-organ and the stripped-down production, they almost sound like a garage-rock version of Genesis. The campy, crazed title-track-with lyrics about an army of wind-up dolls attacking an old lady-is practically Genesis meets Pavlov's Dog with roaring hard rock guitar and manic, tremulous vocals. The rest of the album isn't quite so out-of-control, but maintains an air of theatricality in the multiple voices (both guitarists sing) and some of the darker subject matter in the lyrics (particularly the harrowing, Mellotron-laced "Pictures In A Puddle").

Not enough originality to make this a must-own, but for fans of this type of music, this is one of the better items in this style.
