5 stars A few weeks later, I wrote my review about the 2112 album and you will find strange to give COS 5 stars when I gave 2112 only 4...Ok, it might deserve 4 stars too...But...Did I say before how much I like experimental and weird albums?...That extra makes me put the maximum rate to this one, because I consider it very challenging and adventurous and the result, IMHO, is and album that mixes their present and what they wanted to do in the future making two epic tracks like The Necromancer and The Fountain of Lamneth, both songs are maybe their most unpopular, but that doesn't mean they're not good efforts...

With The necromancer we find for the first and only time, the inclusion of the narration along with the singing...that makes it their most obscure track (fantastic!) ... it's few words, but a lot of music.

The Fountain of Lamneth is more elaborated as in story as musically, the changing of rythms are fabulous, though some of you say they had some problems when linking the one suite with another, but the approach is acceptable.

Bastille Day and I Think I'm Going Bald are hard rock songs...Bastille Day their most popular track and one of the best of the album, while "...Going Bald", a late scream of what rebel and pop groups of the 60's were claiming in those days, their weakest track.

Rush began to acquire its identity, leaving little by little their Zep's influences and making records that embellish our shelves, the best was to come and for me this was their very and most promising beginning
