3 stars Orchestral feel to this album and not as progressive as the follow up albums that came along. All in good time! Nevertheless the title track is beautiful and that energetic Richie Haven opener ' No opportunity necessary, no experience needed' makes up for any peaks and vallies on Time and A Word. Tony Kaye and Peter Banks are still present which also has to have a bearing on the future shape of their music. The real strength on this album though is Chris Squire ( nothing abnormal about that) but his bass work is superb and it allows the whole album to gel together nicely. Some great covers and overall a good album but we all know the best was yet to come. A solid three stars.
