This album combines jazz fusion with some elements of progressive rock, influenced by their drummer Phil Collins, shows extensive use of improvisation in the extended pieces, which is common in both genres of music. Collins' drum work is very fast and rhythmic and show a difference in his style from his main band Genesis. Tracks like "Nuclear Burn" and "Smacks of Euphoric Hysteria" are really a showcase for his drum work. Guitarist John Goodsall plays a primarily melodic element, yet he dallies with the solo lines of guitar and intricate off-kilter themes on the second song “Euthanasia Waltz”. Bassist Percy Jones and keyboard player Robin Lumley are also very capable members of the band on each of their respective instruments.
