Prog Reviewer
1 stars Weak, half-hearted attempt at keeping the progressive flame alive in the dark days of 1985. It might have seemed a breath of fresh air at the time, but in retrospect mediocrity runs rampant throughout this release. Compositions that are barely more than repeating ostinato figures, keyboard tones that never go beyond the paltry Yamaha DX7 presets and a drummer that can barely keep basic time (and is utterly helpless when anything more adventurous is called for) are the main points in this disc's disfavour. On the plus side, Marc Cecotti's guitarwork is strong. Pity he doesn't have better songs and more talented sidemen to back up his playing skills.

The original vinyl release had quite humourous cover artwork, different from the CD release.
