Review by Prog-jester
2 stars I haven't heard other albums from that band - it's a pity because I guess their earlier material was better. Anyway, a huge comeback in Prog circles rarely becomes successful. This is a Pop-Prog album in 80s vein, but not that cute. ELP influence can be clearly heard in keys' work, but the whole stuff is closer to ALAN PARSONS or 80s FLOYDian style. A music for grown-ups - AOR, it seems. It would be at least good album, but it has two killers - "Helping-Hand-Song" and "Loser" - and they both are CHEESY AS HELL! I ain't sure anybody would enjoy them heartfully. Not recommended unless you're a collector/completionist
