4 stars When I got really started with my "progressive life" in the early nineties the opening track of this album was one of the first things I heard. No second faust was on a Si-sampler and I was really impressed. This was something special !! Now after more than 15 years and about 450 progressive albums it still is very interesting but of course I have heard so much more by now that I wouldn't have been as impressed now as I was then.

Anyway I decided to buy the album and still quite green I was even more impressed mainly with the title track. I heardly ever heard a song this long and this is a true symphonic effort by Egdon Heath. I still like it very much, it's a real classic in my opinion. The rest of the songs is also very good, there are some impressive ballads, it all sounds quite distinguished on one hand caused by the perfectionistic playing of the music but certainly also by the vocalist Jens van der Stempel who forms a nice duo with Elly May in some of the songs.

All in all a tremendous performance by this band and it's still one of my favourite albums. For proggers who like the style in between neo prog and symphonic prog played smoothly and distinguished. 4 stars (4.25)
