2 stars APP's music never quite moved me (not even their acclaimed debut). And ultimately, I can only say that rhe worse ("Eve") was mixed with the weak ("Turn of a Friendly Card").

This one just lying in between (at best). An ultra popular hit with the title track and some pleasant pop melodies to listen to ("Children of the Moon"). Now, to tell you that these belong to the prog Walhalla would be quite in excess. Just average, and bear in mind that they do count amongst the "best" ones featured here.

The major problem is when the "project" would like to sound more complex like during the pompous "Silence And I", I would have wished more silence?This is some kind of poor attempts on a more developed song.

If you would like to experience the worse from this album (which is plenty), you'll just have to avoid the press next exercise while listening to the dreadful "You're Gonna Get Your Fingers Burned" (but "Psychobabble" is just on par unfortunately). Gosh! What an experience!

The major problem when you are pointing some poor tracks, is that it is almost a neverending story ("Mammagamma" etc.).

Actually, this album leans severely with the one star rating as far as I'm concerned. But 57% of the reviewers do rate this album as either a masterpiece of PROG music or an excellent addition to any prog rock music collection.

My HHO is that it only worth two stars. And I'm generous in terms of prog here.
