4 stars To me this is the second best album by this band along with the "Trespass". I simply love the aestethichs and moods they have managed to create on the best peaks of this album. The highlight for me is "The Fountain Of Salmacis", maybe the best song they have done. There's great mellotrons and bass lines on it, and the composition is wonderful. There's some pretty weird arrangements in it, as there are two similar verses with different lyrics going on simultaneously (this effect was first used already on their first album)! "The Musical Box" and "The Return of The Giant Hogweed" are also marvelous. The themes for lyrics are also quite weird. The shorter song aren't that wonderful as the longer ones, but it's a still clearly a four star album!
