a fine album that falls a little flat at times regarding some of the vocals and mike oldfield's guitar parts which are too unique to him and comes off as a mike oldfield solo effort which is not what i want when i'm listening to a gong album.
i still have to give this 4/5 overall , a very solid effort .
