4 stars This is a wonderful LP - go get it if you can.

The production and overall sound has moved on a little from the first album, and all the better for it. The almost STEELY DAN-like dry humour remains, altho it's not as obscure.

The musicians performances are fresh and alive. Trevor Morais' playing is superb, like a disco version of Michael Giles!

For me the highlight is 'StarBright Park' which is a sceptical answer to SIMON AND GARFUNKEL's 'America' and the whole 60's hippy scene. 'Europe on a Dollar a Day' features some of the funkiest Clavinent you'll hear on a prog record, and the appearance of the PENGUIN CAFE ORCHESTRA is a wonder addition [PCO had only formed the year before, and at various times had Geoff Richardson and Trevor Morais either as band members or guests.. small world!]

This is very British album, even tho the main perpetrators have Antipodean roots. I would recommend it for it's charm, eloquance and overall feel. :)
