4 stars "Crises" has an epic progressive-new age track (around 20 minutes), and 5 short more pop tracks mostly with lead vocals. The long track is full of miscellaneous instruments, and the keyboards are in many bits really echoed floating streams. Their sound, combined with the electric guitar high notes, is crystal clear and sometimes exotic and romantic. Drums, vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, percussions, everything on this track ("Crises") is delightful from beginning to end.

You can listen to one of the best all time female singer, Maggie Reilley, on the catchy "Foreign Affair" and "Moonlight Shadow". Jon ANDERSON appears also on one track ("In High Places). "Taurus 3" is a beautiful instrumental track made of fast acoustic guitars and drums.
