2 stars I must say I'm astonished about the average for this album so far (3,20!). I already intended to do this one today and was curious what other people thought of this unofficial debut by PT. I expected an average of at least one point lower but see: surprise surprise. The only reason I can think of that this is still a respected effort by this great English band is the only track that is worthwhile but then I mean really worthwhile: Radioactive toy. This is a PT-classic, one of there best songs ever !

But that's all I can think of because the rest is really extremely poor and then I'm talking about ratings between 1 and 2 stars. The best I can say about the rest is that there are some strange compositions amongst them, maybe there are people that feel attracted to this kind of ... (I wanted to say rubbish, but one the progarchiverules is: no abusive language). The other possibility is that they love Radioactive Toy so much that they give 3 stars (or even more) for the entire album. I have no such intentions because I feel you have to give a fair review for a whole album. So I give 2 stars and if it weren't for the mentioned song it would even have been one. Still I can think of 3 reasons to get this album: 1) Radioactive toy 2) to complete your PT-collection 3) to hear what PT was like in their early days just out of sheer curiosity.
