4 stars I'm not a TD specialist. I like some of their works, others sound derivetive and without focus to my ears. This said, I think "Cyclone" per se is a very good album. I can understand the reasons behind the harsh criticism of the TD fan to this album (more or less the same I feel to Pink Floyd's 'The Final cut"). So I don't want to be pretentious and write just some perceptions of the casual listener to 'Cyclone".

Right, we can hear the Floyd influence in the vocal track, 'Bent cold sidewalk", specially the spacey floyd pre-DSOTM. But this doesn't turn this track a bad thing; on the contrary, it's very accessible and a good experience, preparing us to the real treat that is "Madrigal meridian", a piece that is more related to the classic TD sound.

I don't think it's fair to consider 'Cyclone" a bad introduction to TD music. Although it doesn't represent the main characteristcs of the group, it's easy listening quality can prepare the person not familiar with progressive electronic a good initial approach to this scene. All in all, I get 3,5 stars to this album, making an exception and giving a round 4 for personal reaons.
