3 stars (This brief review was originally written for the Finnish prog magazine Colossus in 2014.)

The keyboard player Victor Peraino has continued steering the space ship that used to travel under the name of Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come, releasing two albums this far. The legendary vocalist -- best remembered for the smash hit 'Fire' from the album The Crazy World of Arthur Brown (1968) -- is guesting on this release too, on five tracks out of ten. The science fiction spirited heavy prog dominated by over-the-top keyboards is bound to slip into childishness here and there on this rather uneven album. But especially with Brown's still powerful vocals it all works pretty nicely, if you're fond of this kind of acidy tradition.

Also cover tunes such as 'Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood' or Leonard Cohen's 'Future' have been made to sound truly their own. The package contains a relatively short bonus DVD featuring live cuts from Detroit & Los Angeles. I agree with the former reviewer that it's far from being a must to anyone else than a die-hard fan.

This album wasn't among the best I received to be reviewed 2-3 years ago. I think I gave it to some of my prog-minded friends, but certainly I haven't been missing it ever since.
