Prog Reviewer
2 stars Bruford started getting into diminishing returns on their second album - in retrospect, it might have been an idea to wait a little longer to develop more strong material before issuing another product. Half the songs sound like rejected UK pieces (particularly with the Wetton-lite vocal style adopted by Jeff Berlin on those tracks he sings on), the other half sound like Dave Stewart's National Health off-cuts (the closing track, Lands End, even includes extracts from compositions on Of Queues and Cures). Though the album starts off strong, it lacks staying power, and sounding like a collection of rejected tracks from better albums by other bands honestly doesn't help its cause. The Bruford project would dissolve after this one and I can't say that its time hadn't come and gone.
