5 stars I have over 4000 CDs/LPs. Everything from avant jazz to hillbilly bluegrass. I love it all. Public Enemy is my favorite rap act and Stockhausen my favorite serious/classical dude.

This is not only the greatest Prog album (if you want to call it Prog, I do), I think its the greatest album ever made. Smile by Brian Wilson would be #2. I don't just rank #1 in Prog, I simply rank it #1!

Wish YWH, is simply perfection. Amazing guitar, but still focussed on fluid melodic lines instead of just flash. And what lines Gilmore comes up with...jaw dropping. Lyrics with depth that make you think (albiet some hard to relate to, unless you're a rock star). Songwriting like we've never seen before, and production and performances to go along with that. It brings everything that a lover of Rock and/or Prog wants and needs.

This album is so darn good, it made me search out other bands and albums that might sound or feel remotely similar, just because I needed "more'. Things like other PF albums (Meddle, Obscurred By Clouds, Dark Side and Animals being the most similar), Camel's "Snow Goose", Traffic's "John Barlycorn Must Die", and some RPWL and Eloy.
