2 stars Even fans are known to savage this album which is understandable for its heavy contribution from Vetesse's keyboards. The typical 80's electric synth sound is similar in some ways to the Jethro Tull effort "Under Wraps" released the following year, but this is mellower. The over all sound certainly isn't for everyone, even not for me all of the time but it remains in my collection nonetheless because it has a lot of things going for it. Lyrically, it's very personal with some nice literate comments and observations, "Made In England" and "Looking For Eden" are the best tracks with their light, folky arrangements and introspective moods over relaxed electronic driven rhythms. Anderson showed fine abilities to pull off something different here. Not a bad album but very dated in places and made up of mostly average pieces. Recommended to fans only.
