From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars The fifth albun from the Britanic band CITY BOY " Day the Earth Caught Fire" is a very good example from 70's Art-Rock style.. The sound is a mix of influences of , 10 cc, Sweet, Styx ( mainly in the vocal choirs). The albun in itself, in spite of presents some interesting moments in a form of riffs or maybe some eletric guitar and keyboards solos, is very far of a progressive rock music and is more close of a a little more elaborated hard rock.The best moments are in the track 1 "Day the Earth Caught Fire" with a moog solo and a good vocal arrangement and a the final guitar solo, the track 7 "Machines" a heavy song in ALICE COOPER's "vein" with a guitar solo in BOSTON or maybe STYX' style and the track 8 "Ambition" with 5 distinct párts ( the more close of a progressive song ). My rate is 3 stars !!!
