I don't understand why this set is sometimes regarded as a lesser GG record. It is perhaps a little loud at times, and it is perhaps a little harder to get into than some GG recordings but even so it seems to be as good as anything they did. Empty City and I lost my head, are both standout tracks. The sound of this remaster is simply excellent. Just maybe some of the ideas are repeats of earlier GG tracks, but this not simply copying old tricks that worked, this set is often more complex than previous post Phil visits to the studio. A set that is a must own for GG fans, old and new, but also a record all good prog heads will love, if they give it a chance. This record is almost a twin to Free Hand, which maybe is why it draws some flak, as most GG records are very differant one from another. Saying that Free Hand was an awesome record, and commercially quite successful, by GG standards. Who can blame them from trying to get more gold from a rich seam?
