5 stars I got this album a month ago (yeah, I know....(n_)U) looking for the roots of progressive rock, the base for all the groups I like (Dream Theater, Rush, etc...), I did not expect the magnitud of this record, every song is great, and different, many music styles can be found; the sound is great, I don't get bored of listening: 1- 21st Century Shizoid Man (Including Mirrors) has a very spacey/futuristic sound, lots of cool brakes, the voice is really great, kinda bluesy.

2- I Talked to the wind is a GREAT follow-up to the shizoid man, completley different, more acoustic, the keyboard is great as well as the flute and the voice. It's really soothing to hear it. My favorite one.

3- Epitaph (Including March For No Reason And Tomorrow And Tomorrow) is also a great song (note that i'm getting bored of writing (n_n) ).

4- Moonchild (Including The Dream And The Illusion) has a vey powerfull start, many may think that it's like a movie that has nothing much to say but still lasts 4 hours, but every note is vital for the illusion created by this song. Really great.

5-The Court Of The Crimson King (The Return Of The Fire Witch And The Dance) turn the mood very medieval, great lyrics and music; it's my second favorite one.

In conclusion this album is must to all prog lovers. GET IT. /) /) (^:^) (")(")
