Both of their releases are similar in sound, appearance and quality. This was the first if the two from 1978 and features Cowell, Carvin and Workman playing effortlessly in a more contemporary style that I associate with Japan on the first side. Light, positive and precise with heart. All that being said, side B is one avant track closer to a Strata sound. It still has structure but doesn't resonate as much as the first side. I think I like their second release more.
