4 stars Not exactly a review . I've wrote detailed reviews about each album of the two albums that included in this reissue CD. Tracks 1 - 5 holds the second TP album 'Moonsongs', while tracks 6 -12 holds the first album '.a Thinking Plague'. 'Moonsongs' was a great surprise for me; I didn't expect such a good album. IMO it is a great album that deserve a place of honor between the RIO albums of the 80's, to say the least. The first album '.a Thinking Plague' is mellower, experimental sometimes, but still got its great moments: 'Possessed' and 'Thorns of Blue and Red' are not less in quality than Moonsongs peaks. The CD contains a nice booklet, with some anecdotes and members photographs from that time. Recommended for TP fans as well as for other progheads, who would like to get into the complicate, intriguing and yet very enjoyable music of this band. Although this CD is less complicate than the latest efforts, don't expect an easy listening here: dissonances, syncopation, odd time signatures, and unusual developments are all here, right from the start. And let me say it again, although its high complexity, the music is very moving and has a unique sense of beauty. Naturally four stars rating.
