1 stars If you want to know what was wrong with music in the nineteen eighties, just give this a listen. On the plus side, in comparison it makes other prog rock artists' albums that venture toward pop sound very daring. Emerson Lake and Palmer's "Love Beach", Yes' "Open Your Eyes" and "Big Genitalia" and all of those eighties Genesis albums sound daring next to this one. To make matters worse, it's not even a good pop album.

Pter Bardens makes a brief reappearance, and some impressive guest stars, including Dave Mattacks, Duncan Mackay, Simon Phillips, Francis Monkman, Tristan Fry, and Anthony Phillips. I presume most of them regret this.

Did I say I don't like this album at all? I forget.
