5 stars I have to give this a Five - Coz it's a superb effort from minute 1 to the last minute of the last track. 1. The Darkest Hour (10:52) - Very dark and moody - full of malevolent guitar and atmospheric keyboards and with the usual IQ catchy lyrical melodies.

2. Fading Senses (6:36) - Again very catchy lyrically - and finished off very nicely with a superb instrumental break (Fading Senses) i. After All ii. Fading Senses

3. Out Of Nowhere (5:10) - Catchy and upbeat - but the least effective peice. 4. Further Away (14:30) - The Epic and it delivers big-style, starting with a very cute riff on classical gutar/keyboards - It delivers in composition and lyrics - It has some lively guitar breaks and some neat keyboard work - typical symphonic prog rock - Magic our Maurice !

5. Leap Of Faith (7:22) - My favourite lyrical melody on this track followed by a very good Keyboard/Guitar interchange instrumental.

6. Came Down (5:57) - A nice calm down track at the end - but possibly the second weakest effort overall.

All in all a superb 90's effort - and very listenable from the first hearing - Very sombre in places - with wonderful lyrical melodies - If you like Genesis/Yes - You'll find this an enjoyable listen - get it bought !
