A major disappointment, their worst album!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pine/Cross Dover (Audio CD)
I love Masters Of Reality and Chris Goss, so when I knew they were going to release a new album which, according to Goss in some in interviews, was inspired by Yes and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, I got very excited! Unfortunately, this excitement turned to major disappoint about half way through the first play. To me, the only thing it appears to be inspired by is the Undertones, as at least 3 of the songs have riffs which are variants on Teenage Kicks et al and song wise it is lame. As for the 10 minute 'prog' track, it is not very Yes or Mahavishnu, more like a poor quality early-70's Groundhogs' style jam. Mr. Goss is still a great producer, but as a performer, I think he's run out of riffs and melodies, which is a major shame. Won't be playing this again, I'll stick to Sunrise on the Sufferbus, How High The Moon and Deep In The Hole, which are all 5 star classics.
