5 stars Oh yes, this album brilliant is. Fourty-three minutes and fourty-four seconds of superior composition lyrically and song structuralalaly. This album is safely in my personal top 4 prog albums of all time rotation, along side CTTE, DSOTM, and ITCOTCK, but for some reason I still find it hard to express why. I know that I love this album and that it is a brilliant piece of music but the lack of any solid musical knowledge leaves me in a position of just throwing superlatives at it from the perspective of one with no particular insight. One song, 40 minutes, no lull in the action. It's constantly moving, constantly telling a tale, constantly illuminating the mind, and doing all those other things a prog masterpiece is supposed to do. Six stars being impossible, five stars will have to do.
