5 stars Being a prog rock fan can only be accomplished with at least a look at this weird piece of music. I'd normaly rate it as a 4 star but I think it's really essencial, it summarizes well what was the(let's call it that) prog sound before 72. It's a nice summary of the Canterbury stuff, too, I reckon. Though some songs decay in random instrumental passages(much like the ones you do with your fav instrument while you're thinking in something else while you play), they're all real gems in the end. 4 long pieces, pretty extensive(if you're looking for brief stuff from Soft Machine, that's not your place), that require the right mood and your kindest pacience to be listen entirely(they're really good to relax, like massage to the ears, with happy ending included). A good album, with interesting musicianship, they were pretty authentic back there, never doing the obvious. It's on my top-30. However, Third can only be granted with five stars for its importance. Overall, as I said it's a four star record(which is nice, considering the rambles).
