4 stars First time you throw this album on you may come away thinking the whole thing was made up on the fly. But after a few listens, you'll come away with the opposite. What you get is some fantastic playing in the usual Canterbury style, a bit jazzy, always fusiony with the prerequiste English humor, (check out 'Binoculars' lyrics). Dave Stewart's keyboard playing is fantastic, Pyle's drumming is spot on wonderful and Miller's guitar work is always a pleasure, but I'm keen on Greaves bass; fluid and bouncy, it keeps things very lively! If you're a Stewart fan, then you'll love "Dreams Wide Awake" a Stewart keyboard feast! What keeps it for me from the almighty 5 stars is a somewhat sameness to their first album. No real progression, but hey, any band prog or otherwise that uses steel drums and make it sound unlike calypso gets at least 4-stars from me!! For fans of Canterbury and jazz/fusion fans and any others that might like to try the genres and not get turned off immediately.
