After being a famous King of Egypt, an international preservative company, Ramses is also an obscure progressive band that is not ashamed of ripping off Nursery Cryme, Journey to the Center of the Eye and Moonmadness. Have your attorney ready!

The main problem is not the music: it goes from okay to good. Good flutes, very good Nektar guitar and Hackett solos, good variety of vintage synths.

The main problem is the lyrics. What?!? You heard me, I don't know who wrote this prose, but it's not higher than redneck poetry. Priceless lines like: 'You're much too young for me, babe...', 'Walking in a garden with only plastic dreams...', 'Don't listen to the devil inside, and you'll do what's good and people will be good to you..'. You just can't find this stuff anymore.

Apart from the large amount of laughter the lyrics can cause, it's still average music and could please the collector.
