The Pessimist
Prog Reviewer
4 stars Being a player of classical music, this album is brilliant for me. I do believe also that it is the very first progressive album made. Ever. It may be slightly hard to get at for quite a lot of prog fans for the simple reason that it can be categorised as pure classical music; however for the educated listener, it is a real jem. The highlights of the album would have to be the opener, Dawn is a Feeling, Tuesday Afternoon and of course the classic Nights in White Satin. The other four are just nice classical pieces with some real great melody but nothing too special about them.

For the mere fact that it is the very first progressive concept is enough reason alone to buy this disk, and the concept is also very good and simple. Overall, my first listen of this album sent me into some kind of sub-conscious dream, so i would strongly advise its purchase.

4.5/5, an excellent addition to any prog music collection, however a forgotten masterpiece in its own right.

The Pessimist | 4/5 |
