5 stars MILESTONE ALBUM!PURE MASTERPIECE!MONUMENT IN MUSIC!I don't know,honestly what else could be sayed about this monumental piece of true artistical genius?!?!!In fact,my humble review is a modest tribute of respect and endless admiration to something FABULOUS!This album had a major impact in music at the time of it's release ,it was before time,it was a true atomic bomb in music,something that even today is giving subjects ,themes of discusion how it was possible for such a sensational album to be released in 1978 - already 32 years ago,and it is still so modern and actual!OK,it was supergroup-not necessary to mention the monsters which composed it,but how was possibly to create such an intelligent amalgam of brilliant songs,complicated but in the same accessible,ucomercial but in the same time with a huge impact on so many people at that time?!?!?!It was a magic formula that wasn;'t found even on the second UK studio album!This first album is one of the most essential release in the history of music under all aspects!The musicianship is scarry,the technical aspect is mindblowing,the conception is outstanding!There aren't enough adjectives to appreciate this sensational album!Each musician was on top of it's inspiration and the cohesion of them was PERFECT!Holdsworth became world famous with this album,Bruford made a sensational appearance here,offering a spectacular prove that he is the best progressive drummer and Wetton found te best vocal tones after the KING CRIMSON era and just before starting a brilliant new chapter with Asia.From the first note and the superbe central musical theme which comes and comes from time to time during the album,to the last accord,every audition of this mythical album is offering moments of pure enchantment and pleasure,because is that kind of album that every time when we are listening it,we find new things and new ideas well and intelligent hidden,and it never loose it's endless charm and fascination!!!FABULOUS! 500 STARS for a monumental masterpiece!
