4 stars Well this album could be a classic fusion stuff from the USA in the future, even though their debut album was more progressive oriented. Anyway they have been able to make a remarkable tribute to KING CRIMSON ("Red" era), by means of a stunning version of the title track from the "mythical" album with BRUFORD and WETTON. So it's clear that their fusion stuff sometimes steers in the direction of such 70's classic prog, especially by considering the clever use of the Hammond organ by John Novello and the excellent creative bass guitar as well, by Billy Sheehan. Well this issue is perhaps the best effort so far, along with "High Bias", and it seems it fits into such fusion prog perfectly, being suitable for live executions with improvisational stuff!!

Recommended fusion prog, even though is not equal for instance to "Romantic Warrior" by RETURN TO FOREVER. Nevermind Niacin could produce some clever and excellent music -like that one by RTF - in the future.
