2 stars An improvement over poppy Alan Parsons-like output but still remaining distant from bold "Nude" or previous prog- rock work.

With this release, Camel stands closer to New-Wave than Prog-Rock. On one hand, we have decent instrumentals like "Pressure Points" or title track with distinctive guitar, on another hand, tracks reminding Gilmour by vocal and new wave such as "Refugee" that has a Dire Straits guitar twist. It remains to be said that both sides of the spectrum are quite proficiently covered by Latimer and keyboard work. "Missing" is the only track that could be stated as Camel 70's v2.0 with updated instruments. "Long goodbyes" is a brilliant 80's melancholy track and powerful Chris Rainbow vocals.

3 stars as a pop album and 2 stars for proggers.
