4 stars I had originally given this album 5 stars, but I'm amending my first review. I adore this album and have since I bought it, but it's an imperfect piece of art, seeing as "Supertwister" is a bit of a weak link on the album, clearly written as an afterthought to the four other tracks on the album. This album also feels a little bit too much like how a fictional prog band in a movie would sound. The windy intro and pounding synth on "Freefall" certainly feel a little cliched, and the intro to "Lady Fantasy" seems like prog paint-by-numbers. This isn't to say the album isn't good, because damn, it's good. I'm just a little hesitant to give it 5 stars.
