4 stars I bought myself a Disconforme Records re-release of this album, as I had heard a sample of this album when I was searching stuff of John Wetton, and the song's excerpt sounded quite good. I wasn't disappointed, as the record was very good in my opinion. This music resembles Blood, Sweat & Tears and Finnish Tasavallan Presidentti, being fast, energetic and soulful jazz rock. There are some very tasteful saxophones here, especially the solo in "Dreams of Glass and Sand" is wonderful, where the sax blows very long and calm notes over the powerfully pulsing band. My album version opens with a single cut "Sleeping in the Kitchen", which brings a very cool and groovy start for this uplifting record. "Going North, Going West" is a longer jam number, reaching nearly twelve minutes, and it's one of my top favorites here. "St. Peter" has peculiar jazzy rhythms, and Wetton does the singing here. I'm not sure if all of the bonus tracks are very essential, but the CD was quite cheap so I didn't have to pay much extra for them. This is a worthy album to check out, if you like the bands I mentioned in the beginning of this review, or you are interested of John's earlier work.
