4 stars Highly recommended for all music buffs! Whether or not you like prog, this CD is accessible to most people (I think) and it could be a good entry point to the band. Almost all tracks are excellent except: "Do You Care", "Want You To Be Mine" (too poppy and boring), "Who's Fooling Who" and "Rain in May".

"Starlight Dancer" is wonderful. It has a very melodic opening, influenced heavily by a classical music. This song indicates the trademark of Kayak music, I think. "Phantom of the Night" is another excellent track with touchy melody and tight structure; great orchestration. "Anne" has a nice opening choir and good happy mood music. I like the use of pan-pipe sound (may be produced thru keyboard). Well, I don't want to elaborate into greater detail - just buy the CD and enjoy the easy listening prog music produced from this CD. Progressively yours, GW - Indonesia.
