…the meaty organ of ‘Wildfire’ and the sci-fi jive of ‘The Hollywood Brats’ elevate ROCOCO’s rock to progressive heights. Sadly, they shot too far for many to have a glimpse and enjoy their graceful light.

…this features the band’s main 70s line-up. Even so, it sounds thoroughly contemporary and up to date, and makes you wonder why the band had so much trouble releasing full-length records first time around…The highlight is the baffling and meandering title track, which is billed as a ‘two-part, end-of-the-world prog-rock epic’. Yikes.
