1 stars I have listened to this album twice now. I have heard 'Still', and think is is a fantastic pop album, with a wide variety of styles and tempo changes. I have also heard a curious feeling, which is also a touching album. This is utterly, totally bland. Every single song sounds exactly the same. Boring instrumentation, boring mid tempo balladry, and Tony Banks singing constantly out of key. I didn't mind him when he sung one song on an album, but track after track of this slightly sharp, shrill, thin voice. No, it is awful. Oh, and 'By you', compare to the 30 second interlude on Paul McCartney's tug of war album (1982), can't remember the name, just before 'dress me up as a robber'. But that was 40 seconds. It's not a great track, but there is something weirdly endearing about it, prob because his voice is being fed through a vocoder or something. I enjoy 80's pop, this falls short of the mark, let alone a prog album. The Carpenters album 'Passage' is 100,000x more progressive than this album.
