4 stars In the mid-nineties GLD did a few gigs in The Netherlands, I saw them twice, already bought Forces earlier and thanks to the gigs decided to buy The Crime as well. GLD is (was ?) a nice, serious band giving their very best to please the crowd and they compose and play good neo progressiv songs. I already was aware of that thanks to Forces but I think this one is even better. It's a pity the production isn't optimal at least not the version I bought because otherwise it would even be more enjoyable. This album is somewhat more accesable than Forces, some catchy songs (the shorter ones) but still I like the two epics best. They are great compositions with great instrumental parts (keyboards !) and a good build up. Funny is that on a much later album (Fear, 1998) there's even appearing a Crime part three which ultimately completes the story.

All in all a very nice album without weak songs. So a well deserved 4 stars.
