4 stars This is somewhat unchartered waters for me. I am mostly into the classic prog, prog metal, and neo-prog genres of prog with the occasional Wakeman or Earthworks album thrown in to complement my Yes collection. This album is my first Ozric Tentacles purchase so I can't compare it to their other albums. What I can do is give you my first impression of this album, and you can take it as that. Three songs into this album, I was totally blown away. This album may be one of the greatest prog finds that I have had in a long long time. I have a couple of Tangerine Dream albums which I think are OK, and I was expecting something like that with this album, but this album was so much better. The drums and percussion work are excellent throughout the entire album. The music on this album has a beautiful and lively atmosphere. I normally prefer lyrics with my prog with the occasional instrumental thrown in, but I was thoroughly pleased with this mostly instrumental performance. I would hesitate to call it a masterpiece, mostly because I am not familiar with this area of prog enough to judge masterpiece status, but I definitely think that this is an excellent addition to any prog music collection, and I am certainly glad that is now part of my collection.
