3 stars Um & Aargh indeed.

Sad to see Anthony put out two average commercially bent albums after the masterpiece that was The Geese And The Ghost. If you are exploring Phillips vast discography I certainly wouldn't put this at the top of the list. It has its good moments though. The opening title track isn't too bad. It's followed up by a couple of syrupy love songs. Side Door, pass. Holy Deadlock amusing commentary on bad marriage.

It does get better further on. The instrumentals, Souvenir of Remindum and Nightmare are the brightest spots on the album. The longer vocal tracks, Bleak House and Magdalen are also a step up.

Not as painful as a ball to the balls. And if you don't mind a little commercial in your prog it might work for you.
