4 stars And they starts... With this really nice release.

You can find here several songs that became essential hits of the band, like The House of the King, Anonymous and Focus (Instrumental). The sung tracks aren't bad; in fact, the vocal work is, in general, very fine. But the problem with progheads are the voices: they aren't singers really! It's undoubtely a matter of likes and dislikes... Personally, I think that there isn't any problem with the voices, and if you like to enjoy the music itself, the instrumental tracks are pure symphonic rock with jazzy touches, mediaeval-esques for a while.

However, the musicians show us a lot of talent in each track, playing their respectives instrument very finely, although the master line-up comes after this album.

This is the beggining of the best symphonic rock band of all, and for that reason, among others, this is an excellent addition to any prog music collection.
