Existing comments about this CD

From: Remastered Reason Date: July 27, 2010 at 19:03
Some rockers & some ballads here, both capture the band in a moderate coasting period during their career after such huge success, peaking a few years earlier. Aside from possibly the title track, there aern't any songs that qualify as Heep classics from this 1975 recording. None-the-less, this is easily one of Heeps more accessible albums. David Byron is in top form, delivering another staggering array of tones & harmonies on lead vocals. Undoubtedly, his singing is always a highlight. Hensley, typically showing off his hammond chops, sometimes takes lead while elsewhere creates atmosphere. Box is always more than capable but here, he is a wah wah-ing guitar hero on most tracks. Of course, Kerslake along with newcomer, ex King Crimson bassist, John Wetton deliver a solid backdrop. Also, both accentuate the vocal moods quite well with more than your standard ooh's & aah's, although as with any Heep album, those are neatly placed as well. Overall, the band find themselves in a playful

From: Remastered Reason Date: July 27, 2010 at 19:04
Overall, the band find themselves in a playful outing & seem to be enjoying themselves on many if not all of these tracks despite their departure from the lyrical mystique of demons & wizards & such. Noteably, ex bassist Gary Thain would eventually succumb to a drug overdose during this period, possibly accelerated due to being sacked by Heep as he was already plagued with this addiction while in the band, hence his departure previous to this release. Also, due to the huge promotion the band received at the time from thier record label Bronze, the flipside to the "Return To Fantasy" single was a sought after collectors item, namely "The Time Will Come". Pityfully, the song was obscure before the digital age & used as a b-side & not an album track. Thankfully, today it can be found on any remastered version of this disc as a bonus track.
