5 stars I must admit that- ¨we humans do need to realize that time is passing by without us seeing that opportunities are lost in favor of some useless meanderings...¨ What I'm I talking about...? For numbers of years I've seen this record (on vinyl) and totally ignored it for reasons that only life's ¨determinism¨ can explain... But after reading a very interesting review by a very ¨capable¨ collaborator (*****) I decided to give it a try the next time it would cross my ¨vinyl junky's¨ eyes. And yesterday- LO and BEHOLD- there it was looking at me. Without further adue I took the ¨thing¨ home. I'd love to give the full measure of my total astonishment ...but I just can't find the right superlatives here. If we're talking about 70's sympho-prog-rock-fusion you should not look any farther cause here stands the absolute unpretentious gem. Since yesterday my Technic SL-1210 is totaly devoted to this record. The long track on side 2 is literally -to DIE for- and everybody must live once to hear it. So to all of you proggers around the world - please make yourself a favor and commit yourself... MASTERPIECE Now let me go back to work and let ¨Musiciens-Magiciens¨come to me.
