4 stars Not every prog head will be pleased by JANE's harder-edged prog but I'm delighted about their early work. This album is the one I used to listen to very often because in my opinion it's their most balanced record. The sound of JANE is more blues rock inspired like URIAH HEEP than it has echoes from YES, GENESIS, KING CRIMSON or ELP. The guitar work is melodic, alternating between warm and sensitive and fiery and heavy. The English vocals often sound dramatic and have a strong German accent. The rhythm-section is far from inventive but they do their work. The lush organ work is the most remarkable element in the music from JANE, let you take away by the tidal waves of the Hammond organ, what a moving experience. The two long tracks "Spain" and "Hangman" (featuring a fine synthesizer solo) belong to the best JANE ever made, especially the long instrumental interludes. Just brilliant simplicity!
