Prog Reviewer
2 stars Ange's second album adds a bit more circus music to the pastoral prog model of their debut - not surprising, given the Harlequin theme of the album. Unfortunately, the clowns don't change the fact that the band simply hadn't moved on a lot from their debut. They apparently got to appear at the Reading Festival at around this time as the support act for Genesis, which I think is about right; they're adept enough at mimicing their heroes, but they're not quite good enough to *challenge* their heroes, which is what they really needed to be aiming for at this point of their career. With unmemorable compositions and performances, I can't say I consider this a particularly vital Ange album.
