Heart of the Matter
3 stars Yes, of course, maybe "Sing For The Day" is heavily indebted with Yes' "And You And I" for acoustic textures and melodic approach, but still retains its own identity in terms of folkie flavour, vocal harmonies, and those beautiful modulations articulating the whole song.

Verging on the heavier side of the spectrum, "Queen Of Spades" put at risk the acceptance of this single by the progressive fandom. In addition to that, the vocals are charged with sardonic laughter and that kind of glam exhibitionism. Anyway, this is not Kiss, and we still find here a solidly crafted song with a nice arpeggiated introduction, very good melody, and tasty electric solo.

Heart of the Matter | 3/5 |
