Review by Gary Hill
In the late 1980’s two prog rock greats in the personage of John Wetton and Phil Manzanera recorded this disc. Let’s make one point clear here. This is included in the prog section based on who these guys are (and what the rest of their catalog is like). Certainly the music contained here would not get it listed in that genre. What you have here is a very 1980’s sounding AOR album. The thing is, since these two men are as talented as they are this rises above most of the music like this. Certainly Wetton’s voice alone, with it’s killer evocative texture, earns it a special place. I’d say that a lot of the music here tends to sound the same after a while, but there are still some songs that stand above the rest. I’d say this album is definitely better than average – but only a little.
