5 stars Lee Abraham was completely unknown to me until recently when I came across the title song on youttube. I was curious so I tried it; that was one of the better decisions in 2016. What an awful song this is, absolutely briliant!! The instrumentation, with melancholic piano, flute (thanks mr. Orford for returning to the scene!), wide mellotron layers, absolute fabulous guitar solos that go on for several heavenly minutes and excellent vocal lines, this is a pure classic for me. Yet a obvious disadvantage of having such a overwhelming good and long epic at the start of an album is that the rest lies in the shadow of it. That is not the case, albeit that the other songs don't have the same thundering quality as the title song. They are more than decent, very enjoyable, a tad heavier now and then but nowhere near metal or the like. For those who appreciate IQ, Pendragon (the guitar soloing!!), Camel, Marillion, Abel Ganz, Magenta or Comedy of Errors, check this one out, you won't regret it a moment. Superb!!
