"There's a bliss in urban life, you know? Open your eyes. If the cover suggests new age, there's no disillusion with a musical illustration of the image, the title track bursting in with a light attack of guitars-and-keyboards fusion with inspired vocals the only anchor to the soil, and "DNA" bubbling with life. The late-YES' influence is apparent, yet the playing feels too exemplary to reckon it a sin, especially when Neil Henderson pictures a city landscapes rather than some fantasy lands, so sharp "Song For The Working Man" is as romantic as "On To Avalon". Quite a drawback is a sheer effusiveness of such a romanticism, and "So Strong The Wind" comes too exuberant to be riding a sunbeam alongside the artist, but it's much better this way rather than the other, the Manhattan one, many could associate with Big Buildings."

Here is a link to a Japanese Review, if you happen to be able to read Japanese:
"Here is a wonderful keyboard oriented AOR type music with soaring guitars licks as well. Neil is playing the instruments as well as singing. At times the music reminds me of Saga and the lusher Rush of the 80's with the catchy choruses and melodies. Some of highlights are the title track "Big Buildings", "The Voyage of Magellan" and the superb "On to Avalon", as well as some wonderfully played instrumental songs like "DNA" and "Courage".
Ron Fuchs - ProgNaut.com (USA)
"...the overall result is really good for lovers of Melodic Rock performed with an experimental verve as above stated, and tracks like "Big Buildings", "So Strong The Wind", the delicious "The Voyage Of Magellan" and "On To Avalon" (with reflections of the Anderson-Bruford-Wakeman-Howe project alternating with likes of Foreigner and Van Halen circa "OU812") are tasteful songs realized with taste and skill by Neil who know very well keyboards, guitars and voice.
