From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Definitely the best Asia album of the Payne era... and probably the best Asia album ever. The sound is much softer here, with a clear taste for ballads and soft rock, but this time with no cheesy track at all.

Highlights on this album would be the Ten CC cover "Ready To Go Home" (remixed with a nice Asia feel), "Kings Of The Day" (classical Downes/Payne song), "Free" (awesome epic track), "You're The Stranger" (nice soft rock track) and "The Longest Night" (a nice ballad).

Rating: 90/100
