1 stars This cheesey late seventies disco driven work just isn't my cup of tea at all.Yes it is prog,but this was a time when decent prog rock bands were falling into a post punk blackhole.Jeff Wayne to his credit had the gumption to exploit the situation releasing a prog album that was accessible to the masses .Trouble is the end result is tedious to the extreme and lacks the dark edge and inventiveness that great prog has.Most people who bought this wouldn't have had a clue about something like PF's masterpeice Animals or the like.So I give 1 mark for the energetic The Eve Of The War (which really sold it) and another mark for Forever Autumn which has the excellent Justin Hayward singing on it.The rest is unimiginative filler.Avoid
