Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 October 2005
Not the longest of rock albums but one that fills you to overflowing. The monster title-track is so magnificent that the remaining tracks seem inadequate by the time you get to them. Perhaps Nektar should have placed their masterpiece at the end.
That's not to say that the rest of the album is poor, merely that Nektar are suited to the marathon rather than the sprint. You want each track to open out into something more epic. The heavy, Gothic organ that opens the album is like a rolling wave and the title track is like a series of waves, coming at you with increasing strength, until it envelops you. The vocals are held back in the mix, as if submerged. It's a surprisingly vibrant piece with a violent presence.
Overall, a fine album, though I've never seen the point of including an alternative mix of the same material as is the case here.
