5 stars Gotta say I'm surprised there aren't any five star this album is off the charts awesome reviews for this one. Personally, I read this novel as a young man and heard this album after I'd doubled in experience. Truly, this album defines the reading experience for me. I think this is an all time prog classic, a leader on the under appreciated team and one of the most obscurely timeless album that ushered in the glory years of prog rock. If this were Quincy Jones or Jimmy McGriff this would be a jazz album. You really can't say that about many prog records or artists compared to others on the other side of the musical spectrum. The fact that Hansson is from a wholly different area of Europe compared to others in the prog boom adds to the mystique of the album.

I feel this album has a seat at the table with In the Court of the Crimson King.

WFV | 5/5 |
