3 stars Peter's first outing is very strong, even though it is a bit all over the place. It seems like he's desperately trying to find himself musically. There are many different styles of music on this album and there isn't a bad song on it. On this album, you get prog (Moribund), pop (Solsbury Hill), rock (Modern Love), barbershop (Excuse Me), blues (Waiting for the Big One), and a slight symphonic edge (Down the Dolce Vita). My favorites here are "Moribund", "Solsbury Hill", "Humdrum", "Down the Dolce Vita", and "Here Comes the Flood", although I prefer the version on Fripp's album. "Solsbury Hill" is still probably my favorite song, not just on this album, but out of everything. Overall, This is a very good album and won't disappoint. 3.5 Stars.
