1 stars Abysmal. This band held so much promise, yet somehow their 70's life ended with this abomination. The playing is un-inspired, and lyrically the entire album manages to attain the poetic nadir Geg Lake only aspired to on previous projects. I can imagine him sitting in his basement one evening staring at the furnace for inspiration. That's it...I'll write about central heating !!! Even sadder, I remember rushing out with anticipation to purchase this record in 1978, then actually enjoying it !! 31 years on it's sheen has faded. Can you say ...contactual obligation ? 2009, and rumours fly that ELP will re-unite for a tour. You know I still love these guys, and have hope for one final masterpiece. They owe us one to make up for Love Beach.
