3 stars Not as bad as some previous critics have made out IMHO. There are some gems on the album like Sasquatch, Camelogue( an ode to the the single factor of Latimer basically running solo), Selva and the catchy No Easy Answer. I do battle with the Alan Parson like contributions of David Paton and Chris Rainbow on vocals and would prefer Latimer behind the mic with all his natural but true vocal limitations anyday.All in still makes great listening but certainly a move away from the prog roots that many of the bands either from growing in different directions musically or were forced to do by demanding record companies of the 80's.
