Mega Drive is a superbly gifted songwriter, but that talent is squandered on half-hearted pieces and nonstarters that fall well short of their potential. Several tracks lead the listener in a lifeless loop for their duration, a pair of non-songs inflate the track count, and an unjustifiably long closing piece trails off into seven minutes of ambient sound.

The song offers a glimpse at the greatness that opened the album, though an unvarying song structure and overindulgent six-minute run time prevent it from reaching the same heights. This is one of those aforementioned Lakeshore originals. Following the failure of the Master System Sega once more hit the drawing board to release another home console.
