4 stars Really, one of the underrated American prog albums out there. How unimaginative mediocrities like Babylon and Easter Island can net all the rave reviews while jewels like this can languish in utter obscurity I'll never understand.

A blend of the usual Yes and Genesis influences, but this time with Canterbury-style influences gleaned from Caravan and Soft Machine. A dense yet sound with a variety of keyboard sounds plus woodwinds and tuned percussion make this a constant adventure to listen to. Vocals by Jeff McMullen are clear-toned yet expressive. The CD contains two bonus tracks from a later line-up, with a stronger jazzy influence and a little lighter on the sympho stuff.

In all, an excellent release still waiting to be rediscovered. Recommended.
