4 stars Excellent addition to my prog music collection

To many listners this album is almost a desaster, because of the catchy pop tunes and easy listning, but to me is a damn good one, one of my fav MMEB albums, in fact the third best after Nightingales& bombers and The good earth. This is pop music with some leanings to prog but a well played one and very enjoyble. This is one of that albums that has something special even if you are not a MMEB fan. The best tracks are : the opening track - the rocker - Lies (through the 80's), the smooth Adolescent dream, For you , No guarantee and the funny Fritz the blank( who saw the cartoon version from the DVD they know what i'm talking about). So no deseppointing album for me, the keys om MM are present all over the album and recognaizeble instant, and again did a great job. Finaly this album for me was their turning point in their career, what followed never quite achived the magic moments of the previouses ones. 4 stars without hesitation
