4 stars This is a progressive sophisticated hard rock record and it has a very surprising powerful sound for the year! The bass is VERY bottom, and the distorted & aggressive organ and electric guitars give one of the most powerful sound of the 70's. It is sometimes very loud and heavy! Obviously, the louder the volume is, the better it is! With the presence of the wonderful Eddie Jobson on keyboards and violin, one has to expect subtle refinements: it is really the case here, and Jobson produces smooth and emotional textures, especially with the help of his poignant, nostalgic & sophisticated piano and his electric violin: what a GREAT musician! The female lead vocals are very good, and the compositions are rather complex. There are lots of acoustic guitars too. The drums are very noisy and well played. You often pass from aggressive bits to smoother ones, and vice versa.
