Regarded by many as their breakthrough album, this came on the back of 'Unleashed in the East', which had given an airing to the far heavier live versions of the earlier classics, thus paving the way for BS.

'United' was released as the single, a great sing-along for the crowd.

With a suite of strong tracks, arguably better than some later albums, its not hard to see how JP leapt to the forefront of the HM pack of the early 80s.

Pity they followed it up with 'Point of Entry'.....
