4 stars This is a great album by those Threshold boys. The whole thing kicks off with "Light and Space" which is about some light in space. Very heavy and very melodic at the same time. "Turn On Tune In" is about watching the telly too much. "The Ravages Of Time" is a 10 minute epic that starts off heavy and then stays there- Brilliant stuff. "Sheltering Sky" is a little bit more laid back in its musical approach and is about a sky that you can shelter under. "Oceanbound" is one of my favourites on the album, although at times it makes me think of Kat and Alfie Moon for some reason. "Long Way Home" is about being a long way from home. Musically it rocks like a beast on heath and sounds a little like "The Wombles" in some of the vocalising - Hard but fair. "Keep My Head" is a Richard West ballad and is absolutely beautiful, bringing to mind Little Richard and i think i have spotted some Trevor Brooking influences as well. The last and best track is the awesome "Narcissus" which tells the tale of a young canadian man called Robin Hodgson who kinda like loves himself a bit........Quite a lot actually The track starts off magnificently with Mac spouting off about the fat ego of Phil Mitchell, a grat instrumental part follows and then goes into a quiet bit, which sounds very Yes - like in the harmony vocals. This part appears to be about dogs. We then go back into the heavy section which is brilliantly played and i must say is better in this part than anything Cream Theatre have ever done. If you like your prog with a bit of balls, you will love this band. Don't take my word for it, nip over in your dainty shoes to the official Threshold website and buy buy buy

Cheers Chit
