4 stars This is (along with some INXS record, I forgot which one) the only piece of vinyl printed in Australia I saw in Europe...

And it's great Aussie 1986 single! a delight of heavy rock! Well, we can hardly say 'Princes Of The Universe' were a hit, much less so 'Gimme The Prize' - but they're both squeezed as the heaviest (and arguably the best) tunes from semi-conceptual (let's admit it: messy) 'A Kind Of Magic' album. While, on one side, the band was being swamped in digital synthesizers of the era, on the other hand, they certainly knew how to rock - and this is the proof. There is no material for progressive rock enthusiast, but the songs are showing the level of complexity, idea, fusioning. It was for the movie after all. Three and a half stars, will round them up for nostalgic reasons. No prog here. Sue me.
