3 stars Well probably I could add another star in the evaluation, regarding of a remarkable jazz/rock fusion album and for sure if I don't consider the present work like "a progressive rock album" (despite of the guest star S. Howe from Yes being here, playing within a track), this is one of their best performances; nevertheless as it's the last D.Drags album before their breakup dated 1982, it's an important document! Alex Ligertwood from the Santana group and above all Mark O'Connor at the violin (along with Steve Morse in his versatility) all together give an extraordinary contribution to the composition. Naturally it's not equal to "What if" for example or the most famous work entitled "Dregs of the earth", but especially the first half is very energic and creative as well!! It could complete your private collection of fusion rock, even though I prefer some other compositions such as those ones within a few immortal albums like "Romantic Warrior" by Return to Forever or the best contaminations between fusion and prog, where Echolyn meets Brand X...

Make your own choice!!
