3 stars I can only say the most "prog-ish" type of tunes on this album have to the their 12 minute "Movement For The Common Man" as it is a medley of several tunes in different tempos and time signatures, not to mention their brief rendition of Aaron Copeland's Fanfare For the Common Man, predating ELP's by five years. The other, "What Has Come Between Us", is also a prog-related piece with a bombastic intro followed by a somber body of the ballad itself. The rest is pretty much straightforward rock. Keep in mind Styx was beginning to find their sound at this point! Alas, not enough to make a high-ranking prog album.
