1 stars I have to agree with both rewievs. It's really hard to listen to this album more than once. It's boring, and in worse moments - irritating. It was published in 1990, and at this time things were getting better, generally, in rock music. But here it seems that we are deep in eighties. I accept Belew's pop inclinations, and other albums show that he can make a good "pop- gressive" album. Here the only satisfying element are technical skills of instrumentalists. But that doesn't change anything. Last four songs are rather boring, but not that bad. But it's really hard to get through such annoying, almost primitive pop stuff like "pretty pink rose", "ooking for a ufo" or "not alone anymore". We also have a King Crimson's "Heartbeat", and it's one of the best moments here. And isn't it one of two or three weakest KC songs? It is!. Don't waste your money on it, and if you ever get it, don't think that you miss something at the first listening. This album will not grow on you, no matter how many chances you will give it.
