5 stars Mmmm

it's always great in life when somehting you don't expect much of delivers. I had given up of the Big M after the dross that was Misplaced Talent. Then along comes a dark sombre and gritty album. Gorgeous.

If you listen to this album (and follow the lifestyle) you won't reach 40. Well it's part of the heritage. And it is!!! This prog album brings the genre delicately into the world of the self-critical and self conscious under-achiever. Maybe there's a a little bit of that in everyone.

Once again we realise that DD Fish is a real wordsmith.

This LP (and that's all I know: no discs or extra discs) is an absolute must in the prog collection because it touches and confronts the dark side. Not a common thread in prog (but then I'm no expert).

PS Tux On is just fabulous (based on the 12")
