3 stars Give it another halfstar really!!!!

The second album from Comus came some two years after the release of First Utterances and the accompagnying maxi-sigle release. By this time Comus had disbanded and at the demand of Virgin record executive , they briefly reformed to record this sequel. Although there are moments of sheer brilliance that remind you of the debut album , as might be feared with the conditions mentioned above , not much good can be awaited from such a situation.

Some of those tracks are really awkward (and plain embarrassing if you are a Comus fan), most notably Figures In Your Dream , Supernova and Perpetual Motion with bad chorus lines. However, Down and Children Of The Universe as well as the title track are very worthy tracks taking you back to the debut album , and the highlight being the excellent Get Yourself A Man make this album still worthy of the hunt but by all means you'll find it on the Song To Comus retrospective, don't go dish out the price for the vinyl.

Still a correct album though, but hardly equal to their masterpiece debut album.
