3 stars There are great bits here. The classic anthem Bastille Day and the D&D Necromancer. My favourie is Lakeside Park.

The album is at time frustrating and this is exemplified by The Fountain of Lamneth: the side long epic. At times it's great, and then a drastic transition ends up a blind alley and you're left going Oouch that's gotta hurt!

The band is pushing its limits at the time and is suppose that is what prog is about. It just doesn't come off here with the majesty that later albums possess.
