4 stars This is the first Tangent album I heard and it drew me in straight away. It is stylistically almost identical to Transatlantic as you would expect from a similar 'supergroup' who even earlier on incorporated the same guitarist. This album is a typically lengthy album from a modern prog group but in all of it's 80 minutes it never falls short it always has something exciting around the corner with it's keyboard sounds reminiscent of the classic 70's sounds and guitar playing that incorporates fantastic fast guitar playing and incredible virtuosity in every songs keyboard parts. The lyrics on this album are stylistically similar to Roger Waters late-70's lyrical style with the title track giving a critical view of modern bureaucracy.

This album should be recommended to anybody who enjoys Neal Morse and Transatlantic as it is so similar and will be enjoyed by anybody who loves the slightly softer side of modern Prog Rock. As a rare effort at 70's prog sound that still remains fresh and interesting this one deserves 4 Stars.
