2 stars This is probably their worst album: like Triumvirat, the guys probably fell in love, so they are forgiven! Do not expect here another "Octopus" or "Free hand" album! It is rarely progressive! The guys tried to make a pop rock album, but they completely missed it! Anyway, is there any prog musician, apart Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel, who can deal with pop success? The singer's voice has something wrong here: he seems to lack assurance. Are all his notes right? I'm not so sure! There are a couples of piano boogie tracks. The violins, horns, woodwind instruments, sophisticated vintage keyboards, percussions and complex structured parts are practically absent. The problem is not the simplicity of the tracks; it is rather the absence of catchiness, which will cause to the listener a loss of interest. If this was a concert, then many prog fans would certainly leave before the end!!
