From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Nice and catchy with some of the best lyrics and concepts I've ever heard, but it isn't a progressive masterpiece. I enjoyed it for a while, but after listening to the same A-grade lyrics and melodies over and over again, it just became boring. A true progressive masterpiece (something with a close to 5 star rating on here!) just shouldn't do that - the music must be "deeper" and your enjoyment should enhance as you listen to it multiple times and discover new things.

Also, something unavoidable (being released in 1974) that I really shouldn't complain about is the sound quality... It's fine, but of course you don't "feel" the sound surrounding you as you do with many modern releases.

Either way this is better than the average "listenable" album (3 stars), so I'm giving it 4.
