5 stars This is one great album for the end of milenium, and the end of decade that meant rebirth of prog music. It is more organic and natural than previous album, and this one has so many fascinating and beautifull melodies, excellent production, very nice string arrangements.

This work made me think of Steven Wilson as one of my favourite guitar players, as he is extraordinary on accoustic guitar, and sound of his electric guitar really kills me. He has such huge spectrum of guitar sound, that it becomes incredible. There are no weak moments here, every minut is perfect, I would not change anything in album. This is less psychedelic than Stupid Dream album, but this is such a great rock album, I can hardly find any other to compare to this one, in nineties.

Form of songs is free and complex as well, but it is easy to listen to them. Steven's voice is the best of any of his singing before this record. Atmospheres and mental pictures are also special experience. This is enough psychedelic, enough symphonic, enough warm, enough beautiful album to be one of my favorite ever.
