5 stars Something that basically started it all. Or at least this is what we were told and taught in school (hehe, I mean PA). My first try to start exploring prog music intentionally happened in May 2008. This was one of the first albums I've heard. I remember how keen about it, talking with Mororus, one of good friends I had in one online game I was playing then (but unfortunately, I was concentrating more on this game not so worth of attention [as any other online game], talking with people (I don't regret this, no way!) and listening a lot of prog while I was at it. OK, it wasn't so bad after all).

But first of them was ItCotCK (terrible acronym). Rocking first, calm ballad like second, philosophical third, jamming fourth and conclusion in fifth, take this as my epitaph to this album. Something like Marty was here, because for most people, this is well known album that they don't have to listen again. And even I feel like saying a lot about this record, what else can be said. So let's finish this with cliché

5(-) with one exception - Moonchild, where I'm not so sure that it's so exceptional song. More research needed. Anyway, before I entered PA forum. I though that it's shame song, really bad one, but certain people made me think about it. And so I did.

Marty McFly | 5/5 |
