4 stars A great follow up to the epic Short Stories although I do feel it began to have a stigma attached to their sound as in the ' easy listening' category which worked against them somehow. The title track is 'art sound cinema' at it's best and is a twelve minute opus. There are some fine other songs though the best for me being the ' Mayflower' and ' Outside of This'. ' State Of Independence' got exstensive airplay unfortunately more for Donna Summer than Jon and Vangelis! It is still a great song though with excellent rythym. ' Back To School' was the only weakpoint on this album which is the reason it gets a four star.Jon Anderson was at an alltime low with this song..what was he thinking?
