5 stars 01. Bedside Manners Are Extra The beginning of the disk is a beautiful thing, a music that speaks the soul and at the same time is happy and 'up', the flower emotion the skin in a beautiful vocal from the start. The voice of Dave Lawson is a highlight of the track, along with the keyboards of Dave Greenslade and Tony Reeves of beautiful low. The middle forward the song to become happy and at the same time full of melancholy (if that is possible.) 'Please write to me ... 'Lawson sings in a tone of anguish, and is followed by a ground of keyboards very cool. Follows a choir and a Final wonder you get a disc.

02. Pilgrims Progress The beginning fool ... .. Below is a progressive instrumental in the best style Emerson, Lake & Palmer of Hoedown, and for more highlights the keyboards, a progressive 'dancing' at school in Triunvirato (which is the escloa of Emerson, Lake & Palmer). And it is developing lock in a bustling and cheerful melody. Featured in the line of low-end, simple and very well played.

03. Tune To The Dream It starts with certainty to what I call a 'progressive samba' (of course, one way English!), And then, changes for a vocal line worked very well (which of course is a high point of the band, the vocals of Dave Lawson are wonderful), and gave him land of keyboards and inspired with original timbres. Removing soil from a keyboard jazz/arábi- co close to what would be the 1st part of the disc.

04. Folk Drum Heady! Starts so that you get scared, and as the name already assumed, to highlight the impact of Andrew McCulloch (with a very interesting ground there by means of the song), and gives you more land of keyboards, with the already known and worked with melodies that all keyboardist progressive values that should have total privacy. Then the ground begins a which leads us to the old and famous' Land of Never '(you know those tunes that remind us of distant lands and beautiful style in Lord of the Rings?). And most jazz solos of keyboards! 8'53 of many soils and melodies.

05. Sunkissed You're Not Belo riff! And again the beautiful voice, with a very catchy chorus! In summary the best of the disc in my think!

06. Chalkhill Nice introduction of low! Followed by a perfect battery and taken to land and married the keyboard. Dave Greenslade knew very well how to work the keyboards of this disc. (A curious fact to note is that disc for sure is that he was recorded live in studio, as some imperfections appear on the disc and were not 'maquiadas', which in my opinion is a great thing. Ending only with a final piano creepy! In summary this disc is very good, nice to find the ears accustomed to big names of Progressive Rock, we must always in remember that music is made of large discs of great composers, not just for big names already included!
