2 stars Overhyped prog rock album. This is a prog supergroup consisting of Eddie Jobson, Bill Bruford, John Wetton, and Allan Holdsworth. To me, I find the album too modern for my liking. It sounds more like a 1982 recording than a 1978 recording. Eddie Jobson's ugly- sounding Yamaha CS-80 synth don't help matters (that's the same problem I level at JETHRO TULL's A, which he also played on). UK was definately ahead of time. The album sold quite well, but to me, it sounds like it was hype. It would work better had Eddie Jobson used some better synths, like the Mini Moog. At least I can say this is nowhere as unbearable as ASIA (Wetton's next band, which totally reeks of sellout, in my book). The music itself is listenable, but it simply failed to excite me. Just be wary of the hype.
