5 stars Magnum at the peak of their career

Magnum's fourth studio release is the best album they ever done. After not so well aclaimed The eleventh hour and departure from Jet Records and Tony Clarkin's heart attack around that time made Magnum to be with one foot in the gutter and not very sure if to continue or not. But the sun always shine on every street, and the street's name is Magnum. So with new ideas and a lot more power they release the magnum opus of their career. An album full of stunning keys passages, the voice of Bob Catley shines on every piece, not to mention the main man of the band Tony Clarkin who did a great job here, the guitar sounds not to heavy not to mellow. For many fans, it remains their definitive album because every track is a winner. This is an AOR/hard rock album with prog leanings, but very well played and composed. Every track are amazing from the more edged one like Just Like An Arrow to the slow and the last The last dance Magnum showes that are among the best in AOR style. No doubt 5 stars one of the best albums ever.
