AllMusic Review by

Wheater and Nick Franks, the English multikeyboard wizard whose debut was an adventurous interpretation of Joseph Conrad's psychological swashbuckler Lord Jim, have teamed up to create Babel, a musical fantasia that sails you straight over the top of the rainbow and into hyperspace. What strange and wonderously exotic worlds they have discovered. Synthesizers that talk in tongues. Vibrant kaleidoscopic rainbows of melody. Cauldrons of pyrotechnic guitar alchemy. And flute solos that are romantically pastoral one minute and elfishly playful the next.
