5 stars I guess I'm a bit of an old cynic when I hear claims that a band is the reincarnation of the great days of the 70s or that they have somehow reinvented the genre. Most of it is overoptimistic poppycock.

But not in this case. This album is brilliant with a capital B. It's clearly influenced by the great bands of the 70s but in no way is it copied or cloned. This is great original prog with memorable melodies, great instrumental solos from the guitars, keyboards and flute, including some fine interplay, and some dramatic mood changes. I love the crisp drum sound and the tone of the Rickenbacker bass, too.

Many have described the tracks individually; all I will add that Jordrock is near the top of my all-time favourite tracks and the others aren't far behind.

It is a tragedy that this briillant album was one of only two studio albums they recorded. What a loss they were.
