5 stars I wish I could give this one 6 stars.

This one is the absolute best of GG and perhaps even thé ultimate progressive album of all times. All the genres known to man are woven into the 6 pieces that this album contains.

From rock to jazz to medieval to avant-garde to classical to country.

The 4 longer pieces are essiental in the GG catalogue. The two shorter tracks are not bad but not so very interesting if you're not into GG.

Inmates Lullaby is a weird song containg layers of tuned and un-tuned percussion and silly lyrics form the view of an idiot, verry funny imo.

A Reunion is sheer beuaty, containing cello and Kerry singing wonderful baroque vocals.

The guitars are very heavy in the mix, as are the drums, wich makes this album one of the heavier ones. Commercially not so good, because of the long songs, but artistically their best.

If you want to start with GG, start with this one!

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
