5 stars Let me say this loud and clear - I don't think this is really prog. No keyboards (except on one track), no epics and no real innovation unless you count dual/harmony lead guitars. But whatever, this is simply one of the finest albums ever recorded. Not a note is out of place, every song is a beautifully crafted piece of art and the band play out of their skins. The dual lead guitars produce solos that other bands would die for on every track, the vocals are superb and the lyrics are sheer poetry. By far their finest work and possibly one of the the best albums of all time. Whereas once great albums like In the Court of the Crimson King have become terribly dated, this still raises the hairs on the back of my neck every time I hear it, undiminished by the passage of 35 years. Outstanding and completely essential to any collection, prog or otherwise!
