5 stars taking a break from Battiato to indulge a favorite.

Oh I've wanted to do a review of this one since that fateful day the mighty B.O.C. were inducted into the hallowed halls of ProgArchives. Along with my friend Andrea this is my favorite of the 3 'Black and White' albums. They might not have been what some here consider prog (shhh.. might have a bit to do with being American hahhahah ).. but if interesting clever arrangments with significant prog moments, great musicianship, and thoughtful and downright prog-like nature of the lyrics are your thing which of course they are... you're a prog fan right. Then Secret Treaties should be your point of call if you want to see what the fuss is about with BOC and why they are here. . It may not be deemed prog by the site.. and taking the whole career into account... then they shouldn't be.. but this album is close. Astronomy and Flaming Telepaths willl jazz up any self respecting progger.

5 stars... close enough to prog for any open-minded prog fan. Simply a fabulous album, with possible exception of ME 262, from start to finish. HIGHLY recommended.
