Prog Reviewer
2 stars Frank Zappa wasn't the only progressive musician who produced synclavier-based albums in the 1980s - Eddie Jobson also turned his hand to it on this solo album, which sounds less what you might expect a Jobson solo album to sound based on his classic 1970s violin playing and more like a rejected Tangerine Dream soundtrack, which might explain why Peter Baumann contributes liner notes. To be honest, the album offers nothing that any of the many similarly uptempo New Agey electronic albums from the era don't also offer, and has little to nothing in the way of individual personality, so I genuinely struggle to see what Eddie was attempting to accomplish here. One for uncritical fans only.
