3 stars GTR is one of the hated bands here on PA, only few proggers tried and succeded to have some nice words around this band since it was introduce to data base years ago. Well I will be one of the proggers who like this one, not better not worst then any Asia album , because the comparation in inevitable, musicaly speaking. Releasewd in may 1986, become almost instantly gold in sale numebers, something realy intristing for today standards, if we look at the line up we see some big names in prog world, the contrast between the names and what they play here is huge. Hackett and Howe are for sure the main actors here, the rest of the musicians even are ok and great contribute to the overall sound they are not so well known, at least to me. Anyway the album sounds like AOR with some typical thet special rock of the period, with some good moments, some Yes moments, vague but are, some pop elements added and here we have selftitled GTR. Sketches In The Sun who is a pice wrote by Howe, can be recognizeble his style instantly, beautiful pice, Hackett To Bits is of course a Hackett one, very dark and very progressive, this piece easely is similar with any piece from Defector, same attitude and moody dark atmosphere, very good, the rest of the pieces are ok for me, nothing realy special but ok, each musician did a good job. So, to me is a 3 star album, nothing more nothing less, enjoyble but not very often to be puted to spin.
