5 stars Right, I have collected all the FK CD's - now after listening to this enough times to give it FIVE Stars - Yep this CD is a 4.8 rounded up to the FIVE. Why? Well there is the epic "Love is the only answer" - An awesome composition and with a monster guitar solo of such quality it's worth 4 stars on it's own. The opening track is also a melodic masterpiece with some quite breathtaking keyboards and tracks four and six are also 4.5 star standard and if you like Yes then the yes-like compositions will have you drooling for more. The CD has virtuosity on all the tracks again giving a star booster, the only minor down side to this CD is the two (shorter) weaker tracks and the god-bothering lyrics (which don't appeal to an atheist Dawkins fan like myself). For those reviewers who seem to dislike this because the tracks are too long!! or it's too progressive/technical (or retro ??) - Just get back to reviewing the pop music you obviously prefer and leave the FK's well alone because they are truly the top exponent of Contemporary Symphonic prog rock.
