5 stars 4.7/5.0 This album is a must for any progressive music fan. It's hard to believe that you can create so much rhythm with flute and guitars. The rhythm in the voice on the album reminds me of Gentle Giant in some way while the music itself makes me think about Harmonium's "Si on avait besoin d'une cinquième saison". The group does not need no drum to create rhythm and the drum is very light on that album; neverthless this is a strong rhytmic album.

In every part this is a masterpiece and I would give even a higher rating than 4.7/5.0 if it wasn't for some "slower" parts on the second side. However, as always, one has to remember that it's the slowest parts that create the climax so one can really enjoy the more rhytmic parts...
