3 stars 3.5 stars. I would describe PUPPET SHOW's sound as being keyboard dominated, with a passionate and emotional singer.

"The King Always Wins" is a very short instrumental consisting of powerful church organ. "Relativity" features swirling keyboards, and also a very GENESIS sounding keyboard melody. I don't think the vocalist could put any more into his singing. "As Ye Hath Sown" consists of a lot of mood shifts, a keyboard solo and mellotron, good song.There is a good guitar solo in "Marathon", and on my favourite "In The Heart Of Man" there are some reserved vocals and mellotron that are blown away at about 4 1/2 minutes by some very animated vocals. "The Ring Of Truth" has more mellotron, along keyboards galore and it gets heavy at times.

This is a solid release and well worth checking out.
