4 stars This album to my mind is an improvement as a whole on 'A Question of Balance'. While there is no individual track on here as strong as 'Question' itself, it holds a mood very nicely and avoids some of the pappiness of the previous album.

The opening 'Procession' is a little too long although it eventually provides a great intro to 'The Story in your Eyes' . Our Guessing Game is a great Ray Thomas number that makes you think. Emily's song is sweet without being sickly. In 'After you came' the Moodies rock as hard as they do anywhere in their careers. On side 2 'One more time to live' is one of John Lodge's finest moments - beautiful melody leading to an excoriating denunciation of mans follies. A great whimsical song from Ray follows in 'Nice to be here' and I like Haywards 'You can never go home' a track that moves from quiet melody to heavy rocking and back again.' My song' is a fine closing track from Mike Pinder although it is not quite as good as 'Have you heard/ the Voyage' closing sequence from 'Threshold'.

Tonbridge Man | 4/5 |
