3 stars This is Pallas's second (and last) album for EMI, and as it turned out their last for thirteen years. The CD re-release contains the original album consisting of seven tracks and an additional three which were on the Knightmoves EP (Stranger, Sanctuary and Nightmare).

The album is less progressive than others in their catalogue and has a distinct 80s feel to it. The highlights are Dance Through the Fire, The Executioner (inspired by the true tale of a vigilante stalking the New York underground) and the epic Rat Racing. Of the additional tracks, Sanctuary is the best. The liner notes are also very good giving an insight to the creative process of the tracks. All in all not up to the standard of Beat the Drum but a worthy addition to any collection
