4 stars Having discovered PFM relatively late in the game, I don't possess any fervent allegiance to any particular lineup. Thus I'm somewhat surprised by the intense lambasting of Lanzetti's vocals in these reviews. I can understand why some may find his delivery off-putting, but he's no Peter Hammill! Every cut on this album is strong, and Lanzetti's vocal interpretations only strengthen them. The weakest track is the title cut.-a fairly straight ahead rocker. "Harlequin" is an all-time classic, and would not sound out of place on Nursery Cryme or Foxtrot (yes, he sounds alot like P.G.) The same can be said of "Out of the Roundabout" a monumental track that holds your interest throughout. Song for song, I think this album rivals the beloved Per Un Amico. The true measure of a great band is their willingness and ability to evolve, and PFM travelled light years in just a few albums.
