4 stars At the ending of the decade (70's) most progbands went through a more comercial 'simple' straight forward rock phase, and Gentle Giant was no exception. The music on this album has more in common with Rainbow, Whitesnake, Asia and such bands than with progressive rock. But that doesn't make this a bad album, far from it. It's highly enjoyable.

The typical GG style with frantic sudden changes is abandoned and has made place for traditional rock song formats, with some nice quieter ballads, dominated by guitars and good vocals.

Good music from a great band, just nothing in common with their earlier albums, so approach with an open mind, you might just like it, as I do.
