And what to tell about this album. Itīs just great. People were a bit sceptic before Steve went on tour, but the sceptics were soon silenced by the quality of Steveīs band. Steve himself is at his best, handling some of his best guitar soloīs like on Firth of Fifth and the fantastic guitar duet with Steve Rothery on the closing section of The Lamia.

Actually there is nothing more to tell about this album. Itīs just so good. I think every prog fan has to listen for himself to experience how good this album is.

I like to thank Steve and his band for bringing back good memories from the dark seventies.

Regards,

Obiwan
