2 stars Much overrated debut from this neoprog outfit with everchanging line-ups. There's a lot of powerplay, but the compositions lack focus and sharpness. It seems like they did some overtime to have at least three songs of epic proportions. The Crying For Help concept does not work due to a lack of dramatic credibility. Keith More is not the most suspenseful guitarist in the world, Steve Rothery deserves more attention with his one solo. Overall, an album of derivative neoprog (nothing wrong about that) where sadly enough adventure's gone missing.
