Prog Reviewer
2 stars The Andy Sears period of Twelfth Night is popularly seen as a time when the band sold out in order to angle for mainstream success. I prefer to see it as the band emphasising a different aspect of their sound than the one the Geoff Mann era focused on - if you listen to, say, Smiling at Grief you'll find a song or two in the poppy art rock vein they pursue here, it's just that on Fact and Fiction and Live at Last (the two best-known Mann-era releases) they leaned a bit more heavily on the neo-prog side of their sound. Still, whether or not this album represents a complete reinvention of Twelfth Night or merely a refocusing, that doesn't change the fact that the material has dated poorly even compared to other pop/art rock hybrids from the era.
