4 stars Well I still remember the first time I saw the cover picture of this important album and the way I have been blown away for many years (along with Dice's "Four Riders of the Apocalypse", the present experimental album has not been outdone by any stunning concept,at least till the advent of bands such as Anglagaard and ECHOLYN...) !!In fact, apart from the splendid front cover with beautiful colours, the present long suite is an ever-green and I forget the uneven moments of the second half only;even though at the end the blend of space rock /progressive music, combined with a sort of progressive jazz, is exceptional.I have always been appreciating their experimental breaks-through within their development of this music "puzzle", during my first experience with this English band...well a "German" feel They have.Therefore,by considering the present remastered version as a real jewel still today, you can add their clever use of power chords at the guitar and a good taste at the piano as well (listen to track #2 for instance), in order to love this amazing debut album...of course the second half-as already explained to you above- is a bit uneven, but the final output is an unforgettable concept album, based upon 2 long songs and for me that's enough!!

Check this remastered version out!!
