4 stars An interesting album, a part of the bands classic trio of their 70's albums along with "2112" and "A Farewell to Kings". The album starts with an epic which continues the story of Cygnus X-1 from their previous album. It's a good track, but it has some boring moments in it too. The composition doesn't have as much elements as the band's first epics on the "Caress of Steel" had, but this time there could have been a bit more. Well, "The Trees" is a good short song with symbolic lyrics describing a class struggle (I think), and the closing number is a long instrumental song, a true gem in the whole band's discography! Really great guitar work from Alex on that one.
