2 stars When it was anounced that former and current members of YES, ELP and KING CRIMSON were forming a band, there must have been a buzz in the prog community at that time. That buzz soon turned into the sound of air being let out of the prog tires. The only thing prog about this album was the Roger Dean cover.

I feel the same way about this album as I do GENESIS' "Invisible Touch" record. It seems clear that Wetton, Howe, Downes and Palmer were out to make some money, and in that they were successful. Back in the early eighties I was into Metal, but I was very familiar with the first two tracks of this album "Heat Of The Moment" and "Only Time Will Tell" as they were all over the radio back then. And I suppose that is the only redeeming thing about this album as the first two songs do take me back to a good time in my life. The final track sort of sums it up for me "Here Comes The Feeling", you know, the feeling you get when your going to be sick.
