4 stars Animation is a strong album from Jon that manages to be both fun and intricate. The pop- feeling on the album comes more from the tone of the music than the actual structure. It brings to mind Kaipa with their bouncing, symphonic style of prog. The album is largely keyboard- based with over-driven guitars and a sparkling tone. It's a fairly layered album, with a "wall" of keyboards and guitars playing back and forth. It's strange that a more commercial-sounding album from Jon also happens to be one of his most proggy. Animation is Jon's best album from the 80's and is worth getting.

Rating: 7/10
