1 stars I have no stomach for negative reviews so I'll keep this brief. When I say this is a bad album I mean it, seriously this is well-worth not having it's a Steve Hackett failure. The keyboards, vocals and drums are all awful while the guitar for once ain't crash hot either. The drums in particular are bad and I think they are synthesized as they carry a fake sound to them. Worst of all Steve Hackett tries to make a pop album! Luckily he doesn't try is seriously for a while. I think it's funny that the real cover art is missing; it just goes to show that each artist has a flop album, and this is it for Steve Hackett! I'm not going to do a song by song analysis, I hate being negative I'll just say now that the songs are very poor, save possibly Overnight Sleeper which features some Hacketty traces. I recommend this album only to really hard-core Hackett fan, to everyone else don't get it. One star. Poor. Only for completionists
