2 stars First of all, this album is not as bad as it seems. But it was created in difficult conditions. The band was reforming several times and the turning point to the new and successful incarnation wasn't yet done. I personally like songs Mr. Pine and Past orbits of dust. Both are little bit experimental and has some sadness in it. The rest of the album is maily made of some ballads. Nice but nothing special. However because of no real ballance of material, this album is a bit dissapoiting. Maybe it is not a true Renaissance album, but give it a try. It is not as bad at it is often claimed. But for Renaissance beginners, try Ashes are burning or Live in Carnegie hall instead. 2,5 stars.
