5 stars Ok goodbye for Holdsworth and Brufford! If you are not crazy you may think that any band would suffer so much just to lose two of the best players of the world in his respective instruments, but it wasnīt! Oh no, this record represents the victory of the simple trio unit style. Here Wetton, Jobson and the fantastic mr. Bozzio are plenty of space to showcase their own abilities, and what powerful this incarnation was!! This trio unit had the happiness to achieve three of the most interesting prog rock compositions: Carrying no cross, Danger Money and The only thing she needs. Even the ballad (Rendevous 6.02) is one of the finest Wetton offerings! Eddie Jobson keyboards and electric violin are awesome throughout the record. Another specific highpoint of this record is the addition of Bozzio on drums, Iīm not a big fan of Mr. Brufford style of playng, prefering the most intense and flawless powerhouse drumming of Bozzio. Wetton bass lines never were too complicated as in this album, and one other good point is the absence of Alan Holdsworth. In my opinion Mr. Holdsworth guitar work is depleted of any sense of good form melody, lacking sensibility in spite of his virtuoso technique. This incarnation of UK was more interesting to me than the previous one, and donīt forget to mention that all of this was achieved under an intense crunch of egos (Jobson X Wetton) which would to split the band soon after (one year or so)
