5 stars What more can one say about this album that hasn't been said in the many reviews of this album that already exist? As many erudite members have pointed out (and they are not always official Prog Reviewers or Collaborators, mind you), this album almost single- handedly defined the genre of progressive rock when it was released in 1969, and to this day it remains an undisputed masterpiece of the genre.[br] [br] Having closely listened this album many, many times, all I want to emphasize in this review is that the contribution of each member is singulary fantastic (including Sinfield's) and taken together, the result is a jaw-dropping sensory overload of crafted (and, in some parts, improvised) magnificence.[br] [br] Does anyone really need to hear it explained again in detail--song by song--why this album is absolutely essential and a masterpiece of progressive music? I don't think so. Does it deserve another 5 star rating. Yes, it does.
