4 stars The last of the progressive albums before they became more pop oriented and the last to feature Steve Hackett. I like it a lot but it isn't quite up to the standard of the earlier material (think of Your own Special Way).

Blood on the Rooftops with its evocative acoustic guitar intro and insightful lyrics is excellent along with the epic One for the Vine. All in a Mouse's Night shows the band's humorous side and the Eleventh Earl of Mar is a historical epic. Unquiet Slumbers....... is also a powerful number which is reminiscent of Apocalypse in 9/8 from Supper's Ready this segues into the last song, Afterglow, which became a concert favourite (the live versions easily outstrip the studio version).
