|The old gods return but these crumpled rockers sound like they're on their last legs. Feeding into every 70s "classic rock" stereotype, BOC simply churn it out, biker-style, abandoning all the mysticism and complex lyrical ideas of albums past. Is this the same band that scared me to death on Imaginos and Agents of Fortune? Hardly. A trite, shallow album redeemed only by spotty echos of former glories: "Here Comes the Feeling" and "Pocket".

|I think your very harsh!! The albums you cite are decades old as are you and I (probably. I agree that the edge may be a little blunter than it was but these guys are consistent. Pocket, Dancing on Stilts and eye of love are great catchy tunes. I have been a fan since 76 and I think this is as good as earlier albums (revolution, Cultasaurus, Heaven forbid) If your a fan theres enough to keep you occupied but it aint the summer of love or indeed the late 70's early 80's

|Koogles, this time I totally disagree with you man ! O.K., this is not their strongest release, but a BOC album is still head and shoulders above 99% of the current releases, certainly if you compare this to crap like The Darkness etc. !!! This is one of the most important and original acts in history of rock. BOC rules and will always rule !!!

|Far from their best work, but not screamingly bad either. A lot of this is mainly just dull. "Pocket" and "Stilts" are the strongest tracks in my opinion, but Ithought the other songs just plodded along the path to Filler City. That said, I don't think this disc will lose them any fans. It's listenable at least and not a big departure from their classic sound. But if they wanna stay viable they need to come up with stronger more memorable material.

|Not their best, as has been said, but not bad either. They churn out the 70's-inspired rock as they always have and the production is crisp and clear. I thought that Rondinelli and Miranda worked well together and blended nicely with the signature sound. "Dance on Stilts" is an infectious rocker and "Pocket" got fair treatment as well on FM radio. All in all, a good rocker as BOC only know how to deliver.

|This disc seems to be a bunch of tunes lumped together with no album unity like on "Secret Treaties" or shock factor akin to "Agents of Fortune" or the direction of "Fire of Unknown Origin". Still, after hearing it several times again after giving up on it when it first came out, there are some individual highlights like the sharp witted "The Old Gods Return" & swirling keyboard dominated "Eye of the Hurricane". Buck obviously contributes vocals with the most radio friendly rockers "Here Comes That Feeling", "Pocket" & "Dance on Stilts". Also, "One Step Ahead" is as strong a rocker as they ever made but overall the sum of the parts within don't seem to equal any familiar whole.
