4 stars The 3rd and (sadly) final album from this remarkable ensemble came shortly after their watershed moment, "Electric Savage". While the production is slightly ahead on this release, compositionally, it is a step behind. The short time between releases didn't allow for full realization of all the songs, and it shows. Like the prior album this one loses a star for letting Gary Moore sing ("Castles" this time around). Simply awful...was it his ego that forced this abomination upon us? Can't believe somebody didn't stop it back then. Oh well, the rest of the tracks are superb, if a bit stretched thin in parts. "The Inquisition" and the title track are untouchable...in fact, the entire 2nd side is perfect. This one is a grower for sure, and benefits from repeated listening. Jon Hiseman never gets the credit he deserves (step aside, Bruford), and neither did any of his bands. This one is the best, and should be heard by all who appreciate true talent.
