5 stars This has been the first progressive rock album I've ever listened to and it's still my own favourite. Although this is my favorite album, it shows that nothing is perfect, sadly. Firth of Fifth, Dancing with the Moonlit Knight and Cinema Show are really good, breathtaking songs, but there are two songs that break that masterpiece.

More Fool Me. It's simply, boring and unimaginative love song. I can never understand how it was included in the album.

Another song is The battle of the epping forest. It has several great points, but some points are clearly made too hasty and idle. Despite this, TBOFTEF is very good song, but nothing compared to Firth of Fifth or Dancing with the moonlit knight.

Despite these slightly weak songs, Selling England By The Pound is my favourite prog album and maybe the best prog album ever. I give five stars of five.
