.. then you'll already have bought this album,a quite superb example of Sci Fi rock at its best,in the early days Heep & Purple would be the main influence alongside the obvious Floyd and Hawkwind references,by the 80's the band had develped its own sound,quite frankly they stepped into the black hole left by Rush as they moved into a different Hemisphere.

Opening with a stunning little keyboard introduction we're then left to marvel at a quite excellent track 'On the verge of darkening lights' propelled along on some stunning bass playing,before track 3 bounces out of the speakers 'Point of no Return' again carried along on a bass riff (reminds me of Sabbaths Heaven and Hell).

Highlights,well all of it,if pushed i'd plump for the 'epic 'Mysterious Monolith' with its keyboards of delight while 'Spinx' is just other worldly cosmic rock at its best.

The original album was released in 1981,the uk didnt get it until '82 complete with stunning Rodney Matthews sleeve,this is the 2005 remaster,sounds outstanding,comes with booklet containing the story which covers this album and its 1982 follow up 'TIME TO TURN',it also contains a rather uneccesary bonus live track,recorded in Paris 1983

I remember buying this back in 1981 with the UK sleeve designed by Rodney Matthews. This remastered version is an absolute gem. I really don't know why this band were not internationally acclaimed. The music is very Pink Floyd/Camel/Genesis and every bit as good!

i remember buying this after hearing it on the radio around about the time it was released here in the UK.
this has remained one of my favorite albums of all time. sound quality is good, as it should be on CD !!
music is excellent as ever, just need to buy the remastered version, if you like good moody electronic/rock
music then buy it, this is five star music. once i get the remastered version there will be an update.

this Cd breezes lovely through the trees of the mind bending creative colors with tinkling chimes and heart panting tones. If i were alone in a dark wood or a desert island this is the Cd i would like with me. They have been knocking up art for years. But this is the best art I have heard from these canvas music painters. What an album. If life was to be enjoyed by the finest of music well this is it. Music is invisible but makes the best patterns in the creative mind. Forge yourself a dream and buy this you cannot go wrong
