From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Well it is not progressive rock but its an excellent addition to any music collection. Few other bands of progressive rock genre managed to produce such a modern and melodic album and without losing the fundamental elements that characterized their music during the 80's. Excellent production,very good and really decent pop-rock songs,balanced vocals(latimer should have hired very earlier chris rainbow and david paton) and of course, perfect execution by all the musicians. The concept of the story was very timely those days and not far away from west berlin's fall of the wall. Thre's a dark and moody-kleistophobic i should say-atmosphere in some of the songs(west berlin,vopos)and its that charisma latimer all of the concept albums he made...he always got very deep into the substance of the story and always produced melodic and fully emotional music. Among the other songs i really focus on long goodbyes with the magnificent guitar solo which really tears hearts apart and you want to hear it again and again(the same happens with the guitar intro of airborn and the guitar solo of rose of sharon-for me latimer is the best at these kind of soloing...anyway). Overall, a very good and really underrated album.
