3 stars This record is the epitome of sophisticated hard rock with some very light progressive elements. It has obvious similitudes with Deep Purple, Argent, The Who and Nektar, at least the combination organ-electric guitar, plus the lead & backing vocals. The musicians play VERY well, and the overall sound is rather happy American hard rock: they are probably one of the most American-sounding bands from UK. The lead singer has an irreproachable voice. There are some mini moog parts through a rhythmic dynamic bass, which sometimes gives them something approaching the Styx's style. They are a bit more progressive than common American hard rock bands like Kiss, Aerosmith and Boston, although they may sound less aggressive.

Rating: 3.5 stars
