4 stars I got this album through mail order for $16,and I was not dissapointed.I would say that this is still comparable with ''Glory of Inner Force'',but with a more progressive edge,along the lines of a heavier YES.The album kicks off with the 20 minute song''A Passion Condensed'',which is a guitar rock song,with some keyboard work and funk like rhythms at times,during the first 8 minutes. Between 8 and 11 minutes into the song, there is a mellow electric guitar solo,with some piano work in the background.Then,between 11 and 13 minutes into the song,it turns back to guitar rock.The mellow electric guitar solo comes back into play again between 13 and 15 minutes into the song,with some keyboard work.The remaining 5 minutes of the song is guitar/keyboard rock."Scars On The Ego''(8:51)starts out with a siren sound for 18 seconds,and the music comes into play,changing back and forth between guitar and keyboard rock,and mellow passages.During the last 1:40 minutes of the song,the song speeds up to fast playing,like FOCUS or MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA.''Beyond The Bizarre''(14:32) starts out mellow,and moves at a steady pace,with guitar and keyboard work,and drums.There is a piano solo between 5.50 and 7.20,then the music comes back in.Between 8:52 and 11:35,there is some mellow electric guitar work,along with some acoustic guitar passages and cymbal tapping. The song ends in a melodic way,musically.I would say this is not quite as great as ''Glory of Inner Force'',but I still give it 4 stars.
