4 stars OK OK, it's a masterpiece, prog fan must have and maybe also revolution. But it does not work for me so much, as I wanted. And yeah, I wanted a lot, because I've seen this one in charts for a long time and hesitated to finally get into it. I finally did, as you can see and my feelings are confused. It's folk, that's for sure and I hear it all over this album, shouting at me. I like folk music, especially these exotic ones (I'm used to listen/live in western culture), but as far as I can decide, it's not so much prog. In some elements, it is. And folk power of this is high enough to give me justice to give

4(-), but not more. So far at least. Maybe there will happen same thing as with "Mice And Rats In The Loft". Giving less would be on verge of prog blasphemy (even I would dare to do it if I would like - why not after all), fortunately, I don't feel that way. I don't want to anyway - because there has to be a way to this album. Well, to close this somehow, I can't hold this anymore. Wanna know what Picchu means in my language ? Well, it's unappropriate for this site, so I'll let it on cu_t - of course, this doesn't mean anything

Not easy listening (if you want to listen carefully and closely)
