4 stars Carrying on in the Genesis-oid prog rock style of JESTER, with wailing electric guitars, chimingh 12-strings, harmonic vocals and layers of symphonic keys. This one has a bit more of a lighthearted feel than the dark and brooding JESTER album. Also, a hard-rock feel starts to surface on "Summon up your strength" and live favourite "After the crop". On these songs, Mario Guccio sounds unnervingly like Bon Scott of AC/DC, a very weird effect when pitted against choral Mellotrons!

Apart from the artwork, which is every bit as twisted as that included with JESTER, the urge for surrealism seems to have been tempered here; apart from the latter part of "After the crop" and the tongue-in-cheek reference to the tunes from the JESTER album on "The fifth season", these tunes seem to be more or less Genesis-like story songs.

Progbear | 4/5 |
