3 stars I still have a soft spot for this album. I was fortunate enough to see them on tour for it, according to the record, they did just a few shows after that before calling it quits. Too bad this wasn't more of commercial success. They did a better job of blending prog and pop than Giant For A Day. Still a notch below The Missing Piece.

Best track on the original release is Inside Out. Still gives me the chills to listen to it. Heroes No More, the bonus track on the One Way Records CD is also fairly decent. It probably was excluded from the original album because they were trying to put out a more commercial effort.
