    Pipes Of Peace as a whole isn’t a masterpiece by any stretch. There are songs that drag the album down, but there’s also a bevy of material with enough meat to make it a hearty collection.

    A good listen to the album today reveals some ways it was ahead of its time.

    Pipes is the weaker collection--no remaster can disguise this. [Nov 2015, p.93]

    The album consists of a number of tracks that failed to stick on prior releases as well as a few tunes that seemingly attempt to capture the sound and feel exemplified a year earlier.... For an album that slogs along unassumingly, it’s not surprising then that the bonus material fails to make much of an impression either.
