3 stars The third album by the band has it's great moments, but also some terrible songs too. The opener "Cirkus" is my favorite, as it has very powerful and oppressing elements on it. Also some runs with acoustic guitar here are truly stunning! GORDON HASKELL was doing the singing and bass playing too, which I found as an interesting anecdote. Some of his bass lines are actually quite good! The title epic on the B-side is interesting, having a short quest visit by JON ANDERSON on vocals. "Lady of The Dancing Water" is then a pretty little fairy ballad, but I found both "Indoor games" and "Happy family" extremely irritating songs. Controversial LP, but worth of a listening though.
