4 stars Even though this is not a masterpiece of progressive rock, it is still a must in a serious collection. Not only considering it is a very important release in the dark musical landscape of the 80's, the music can stand on it's own. Pallas plays an agressive progressive rock with a lot of melody, they have a perfect mix of straight ahead progressive rock in high tempo with more thoughtful melodic parts with lots of tempo changes. I really like the more accessible shorter songs wich adds lots of tempo to the album, also the longer songs wich lets the music develope complete the album perfectly.

The album art is fantastic and some of Patrick Woodroffe's best work to wich suits this album perfectly. This is a review of the original LP release from 1984 wich is somewhat different from the later CD releases. It consists of 6 songs and lacks some of the songs that were later added to the CD, it has also a different song order.

This is one of the albums that started my musical journey into progressive rock, along with Marillion and IQ. Oh, those memories.... A very important progressive rock album that you need in your collection. Rating: 7/10
