Dawn Explosion

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gary Hill
Captain Beyond has a rather legendary status in the ranks of hard '70s rock. Their fame is actually in the "cult status" category.

Where they falter here is on such songs as "If You Please" and "Midnight Memories," which seem to be trying to reach toward accessibility, but come much closer to banality and mediocrity. This disc cannot take away from the tremendous glory of the other albums, though, and several of the tracks certainly still hold up well.
