3 stars First thing to say is that I've only had this album for about six months so its probably too early for me to be posting a review about it but I can't be bothered to wait any longer!

My first observation is that even on the remaster it all sounds a bit 'tinny' to my ears.Is this really taken from a first generation master tape? I doubt it especially as there is some obvious hiss on some tracks.

My second observtion is that none of the songs are as strong as those on other albums.Too much of this is complex for the sake of compelexity and the song gets lost along the way.

Thirdly the drums seem very weak and ordinary by great prog standards.

The main plus point seem to be that Kerry Minnear is on red hot form.Great keyboard player and multi instrumenatlist for sure.

The live bonus track seems to sucessfully summarise the album and make all that goes before redundant.

Ok its just an opinion but Power and The Glory is GG's great masterpece for me not this slightly over self conscious 'trying to be too complex for the sake of it' album.
