5 stars One of my top ten for sure. With this one eddie not only cemented his rep as a performer, but also introduced a new facet as a bona fide composer (Yes, Yes he contributed here and there, but this is his own solo product from A to Z). Just about everything in the album is perfect. As mentioned the compositions stand on their own. The musicianship is top notch, and what's more the sounds wrung out of his keyboards (notably the CS-80 and the minimoog) are often baffling, as well as their integration into the song framework. I can't say I have the same fondness for Eddie's vocal talents unfortunately, which constitute the only weak point AFAIC. Whatever, as mentioned he shines on all instruments, with particular insistence in this work on the violin. Highlights are too many to mention but Prelude, Turn It Over, Who My Friends..., and Listen to Reason are all more than worthy of your progressive attention (this last one is remarkable for the violin solos). No desert island isolation would be complete without this one.
