4 stars Wow, this is a rare gem indeed. Jon Anderson (YES) goes neoprog! :D Or that's what it sounds like, anyway. This is a small band from the UK, that only released one album on the now-dead Dutch SI label. I was really really lucky to get my paws on a copy, and it wasn't even a bad purchase at all. In fact, this is good music.

I wouldn't know what to compare this band to, as I'm hearing a great mix of all kinds of semi-familiar sounds. "Children's Games" is the album's epic, and it's probably the best track on the album, though I'm growing fond of "Hold The Key" as well.

Really, the chance is small, but if you ever get an opportunity to get your paws on this album, I assure you it's well worth your money, even if you're not a fan of the particular sub-genre. They should really re-issue this one. It deserves at least that.

Yours, Tailscent
