4 stars Some guys may think that I'm exaggerating giving this album 4 stars, but believe me, I'm not!!! This is what the best we can find in Art Rock: songs perfectly executed, full of emotion and with a fine touch of Prog Rock here and there... The combination of the melodic voice of Rik Emmett and the thunder voice of Gil Moore are sensational, and the song "killing Time", where they make a duet vocal is superb! For the people who like the hard rock side of the band "Rock Out Roll On" and the zeppelian "Cool Down" are fine examples of the great capacity of the guys. And who prefers the combination Hard/Prog... the best part of the album: the mini suite that begins with "Times Goes By" and ends with "Killing Time". These songs reminds the best moments of "Caress of Steel" by RUSH. But TRIUMPH wins the competition... Then comes the blues based song "Stranger in a Strange Land", for break the clima and the album ends with the sensational instrumental piece "Little Boy Blues", where we can feel the absolutely emotional guitar of Rik Emmett (this song is pure feeling...). Well, the disc have two weak compositions: "Spellbound" and "Follow Your Heart", where the repetitive refrain kills the song. Because of it, 4 stars, but very solid 4 stars. Maybe 4,5...
