4 stars This record is UK's sophomore studio album. It is still very progressive, and less fusion that the previous one. Jobson's keyboards still have futuristic elements and they are sometimes intense, dramatic & floating; Jobson also uses here an omnipresent vintage organ a la ELP or Triumvirat, so that the overall sound is less modern than on the previous album. There is no more guitarist, and Bill Bruford is replaced by Terry Bozzio on drums. The sound is less crystal clear than on the first album.

The catchy "Rendez vous 6:02" has excellent piano & moog parts. "The only thing she needs" has organ parts sounding a bit like on the Steve Hackett's "Highly strung" album. The refrain on "Nothing to lose" surprisingly has a bit the Asia's style. The epic "Carrying no cross" starts with an impressive electronic effect applied on a piano; the first part of the track has a mellow & futuristic ambience, while the second one contain fast, complex and flamboyant organ & piano parts a la ELP.

Rating: 4.5 stars
