Tony Banks used a Roland JD-800 on this album (jointly with a Korg WS and an Ensoniq VFX). He also used these synths - among others - during the "The Way We Walk"  tour (he replaced the VFX by a SD-1). You can for example hear a JD-800 soft glassey pad during the "Hold On My Heart" (Track 9) song:

Jean-Yves d'Angelo and Brad Cole were both keyboardists on this french singer Michel Jonasz album. I read in an interview that Brad used a lot the JD-800, especially for sweet background textures as, for example, during the "Vivement l'Avenir" (Track 3) song:

You can hear an example of it during the "A Piece Of You" (Track 8) song as background pad (doubled with a sort of digital ElPiano attack during the introduction):
