2 stars This album should have been titled "Three Blind Mice" because they were obviously lost without a clue on this one. Perhaps it's because Phil was absent while he dealt with his personal family difficulties. Maybe it's because Mike was trying to become a better guitarist in order to attempt to replace Hackett and Tony was trying to make a leap to composing shorter, more commercial melodies. In any case, it didn't work on any level and belongs way down the list just above "Genesis" and "Invisible Touch." (Those two compete for the title of worst album.) There's not a memorable song included and, if not for the fluke hit "Follow You Follow Me," it may have sunk the band's ship altogether. They must have realized this fact themselves because their next effort, "Duke," is one of their all-time greatest. Some will disagree but I have to call 'em as I see 'em and this one is a stinker.
