1 stars One of those US releases that everyone praised so much in the early 90's and that I loved to hate it and with good reasons as IMOHO this type of music sucks . Just kidding but I supposed it was the year it came out as it must've been the only kind of slightly-remotedly-faintly-progish-in-a-sort-of-way album. Again, I am kidding here, but really this was not my cup of tea. I understood that a new generation of kids actually loved this type of group, because it was actual and contemporary to what they were living , that these bands could actually get them to take a leap to more challenging musics afterwards so I was avoiding to say such comments as I do nowadays about such groups. Please do not get me wrong, the album is hardly botched up (quite the contrary), but it was aiming at a public from which I certainly felt a great distance from. But the level of musicianship and the general producing qualities of this album is reasons enough for its success back then.

I was always one to think that scarce offering of prog makes for over-rated so-called masterpieces of starving Progheads . This was the case in the early days of Magna Carta label releases .
