4 stars This was BOC's real return to Progressive Rock. Many reviewers have already done a great job of going into detail about the album, so I mostly just want to add my opinion about this album. It is probably their loudest album being very guitar driven, but not to the point of the big haired 80s style of the time. This is a very intellectual album and even includes a "remake" of a few of their songs from the "black and white" album years. I love the remake of "Astronomy" almost better than the original as they update it here and take away the older sound of the song. "Cleaning up" a song like this usually doesn't sit well with me, but I think they did an awesome job of this one. The second remake is the song "Blue Oyster Cult" which is actually a remake of "Subhuman" is not as good however and I would have preferred that one was left alone. Overall, though, this is definately a great album and unfortunately is often forgetten. I would suggest searching this one out. I would also love to find it on vinyl, but as of yet, have not been able to.
