5 stars EDIT: First track's 3 minutes is where you can get your prog climax. The rest is where you can enjoy it.

Strange that this one was in my mind one part of duo (together with Bubu), both are masterpieces, but for me, this one is a winner.

There's simply everything. I feel like in prog paradise. It's maybe blasphemy (it's against everything I've believed so far), but it's far better than all these Pink Floyd's and Genesis), but I would easily nominate this as one of the best albums of all time (sorry Rolling Stone magazine, I don't believe your Aretha Franklin at all). It's beautiful old and nostalgic sound (anyone familiar with Nuovo Cinema Paradiso? if this film would be less artistic and more proggy, it could have this music). Yes, it's hidden gem, but this is why we're digging so deep and so furiously to find such treasures. This music simply can't leave anyone cold in heart, it's so moving and its message is so clear (messages, it's trying to be and it's well successful.

For example in first song UFO, classical guitar work is great. Reminding Andres Ségovia (but done in prog style), then 2:00-2:30 guitar is breath-taking. This is legend. Forgotten by most, but looked onto with flame in heart by few of us who know it.

5(+) dig dug

EDIT: After tens of listening, this album continues to be one of my most favourite ones. Is now in my "hall of fame" (Magenta - Seven, Moon Safari - Blomljud, Dream Theater - Scenes and others I play frequently)
