3 stars 1979's second album saw the band dispensing with the extra musicians and doing it all themselves as they all added a bit in the way of drums and percussion. This starts off very dreamily with seagulls adding to the atmosphere, and "Wake Up" is full of long held-down chords and gentle emotion, a very delicate and enjoyable instrumental that leads into the album. But they can strengthen it when they want to, and the bass line drives it on when necessary although they don't ever really rock out. There are times when they sound as if they have been paying attention to some of the instrumental work of Saga, which certainly makes it interesting.
