3 stars A strong debut album by a gifted piano player, composer with original high-pitched voice. Not surprisingly, songs are piano oriented with mellow arrangements and a touch of progressive rock textures while being rooted in songwriter pop. However, compositions are more ambitious than commercial pop likes. I like the hit "Wuthering heights" and the final title cut for its epic feeling. "The saxophone song" has indeed saxophone and Canterbury feeling in it. "The man with child in his eyes" is a strong and effective ballad, perhaps hinting at Elton John's influence due to orchestration, sad feeling and piano.

This is a great pop album and a non-essential crossover prog.
