4 stars Does not contain the, in my opinion, the usual instrumental noodling/jamming that too often appears to happen when Ronnie Stolt is in not kept in check/left in charge, in certain Flower Kings recordings, the first Transatlantic cd etc.

The vocals and instrumental passages are blended together to form pleasing compositons that one can listen to time and time again and it gets better time and time again, where the endless noodling/jamming becomes tedious.

Too many masterpieces out there to give this one a 5 star rating.

As a personal note, prog artists should check the Allman Brothers live recordings on how to make masterpieces involving noodling/jamming. They (Allmans) aren't prog, but they know how to do well.
