4 stars It's really hard to believe that this is a three man band, but being from Canada they followed suit with the likes of Rush and Triumph. City of Fear is full of delights even by today's standards. From the hard driven "Power", to the smooth and refreshing "Surface to Air", there is something for every prog enthusiast. It is quite surprising that this album never made it to cd form. I am very sure that if City of Fear was ever put out on cd it would sell pretty well. I have also heard Black Noise which was released in 1977, and I like it but this band seemed to gel in the three years between "Black Noise" and "City of Fear." "City of Fear" is also very well produced with great sound quality for 1980. The band is sharper and more concise. Their instrumentation is more sophisticated with more depth. I like to think of FM in the same lines as UK without the long instrumental movements. This by no means is taking anything away from FM.
