For me, I'd rank it below the best trio (Storyteller's Night, Vigilante, Wings of Heaven), but above the best of the rest. For whatever reason, I just love that album. The original intent was to provide the Magnum album between Storyteller's and Wings of Heaven if Gary was writing with Vinny Burns on guitar. I'd say he succeeded magnificently, with a bunch of absolutely stellar songs.

Go through a few more Magnum albums (Chase the Dragon, Sleepwalking, 13th Day, Visitation), then you get When Empires Burn, and the rest of the solo albums fall some amount below that.

just my thoughts...
