Excellent debut album from an excellent band. Definately their most commercial release, with only hints of the more Proggy sound that was to come on the phenomenal 'Once Around The World' release a couple of years later. This one was chock full of 3-4 minute Pop/Rock tracks - 'Calling All The Heroes' being the biggest hit here, although not necissarily the best one. Check out 'All In Red' 'Whole New World' 'Screaming On The Beaches' and 'Cold Tired & Hungry' for more top quality.

Maybe their best work Good Progresive Pop Rock/AOR recuerdan en algo a los Genesis en este estilo de que hay cosas buenas los hay pero son contados este album es uno de esos un buen trabajo que da gusto escucharlo 8/10

Wow, these guys are really good!! Francis Dunnery (or whoever writes the songs) really has a great grasp of melody. The songs, while being progressive, always have a "direction" and don't just meander, and are always melodic. It reminds me alot of the style of Yes. It feels like listening to AOR/Pop with prog elements thrown in. In other words, the dominant musical genre to me is AOR/Pop. Melody lines are deceivingly simple (try playing any of this if you are a musician!). Very talented group and underrated.

Great debut!!!...mixing Prog Rock with some AOR/Hi Tech AOR & Pop elements with superb quality,Francis Dunnery showed how skilled he was not only as a vocalist but also as a guitar shots are "All In Red" & "Calling All The Heroes" but add to those "Screaming On The Beaches" & "Turn Me Loose"(catchy)...a British band that marked a strong musicianship back in the day and this one was just the beginning for some wonderful times that the band had...89/100...recommneded....

High quality work. Nice AOR/Prog.
