3 stars Addition by subtraction.

Without keyboardist Tony Kaye, Peter Banks has to work harder on his guitar to fill out the songs than he did on the debut album. The songs, on the whole sound a little more consistantly progressive than on the first album.

There are three epics here, each over ten minutes long, and all three are better than two of the three on the first album. Lifetime, despite having an awkward rhythm and mood change in the middle, has some very nice guitar playing by Banks, including some obvious quotes from other artists known here. Black And White is a good prog song, but has some questionable lyrics. And There No More is the best of the lot, possibly the best song on all of Flash's albums.

A solid three stars.
