Prog Reviewer
3 stars After the funk-jazz of INCREASE and the all-out disco-rock of TITANIC, the band reverted to their old, pre-prog heavy rock style. On the one hand, it feels like backward progress, on the other, it seems a more graceful way to age-playing up to your strengths as opposed to trying to keep up with the times in musical idioms that are an ill fit.

No real prog here, save perhaps on the gradually-developing "King of An Island". Some superior surging rockers here, though: "Nuclear Reactor", "Get Ready To Run" and "Greedy Eyes", all of which remain in the band's live repertoire. Frenzel's strained vocals on "Take alarm" and "Doom Boom" are a bit of an unwise idea, but I like to think of them as a bit of a bittersweet epitaph. Frenzel died not long after this album's release.
