5 stars Well here we go ...

Is this good, well hell yes! Simply one of the must haves. I'm not a fan of the whole album by any stretch of the imagination but the opening couple of minutes attains a level that so few albums even aspire to that it has to be an essential part of any self respecting prog collection.

I don't reckon this should be, by any means, the greatest prog album (which the charts indicate) I cannot however fail to give this 5 stars as it is without doubt one of the essential prog masterpieces (I prefer Hidria, Tool, Ozrics and Magma inter alia)

Lyrics are witty and effortlessly challenging. The opening is what undergraduate poser guitarist wannabes wish they could play: it's easy to go on, but since this is an album any remotely self-respecting prog-head should listen to .. i leave the rest to your own devices,

simply essential ... although it may not be your cup of tea
