5 stars I guess that for a lot of younger progheads, coming to this album years after its issue, might well feel that it was overrated. However, when taken in its historical context, it deserves to be regarded as an all-time classic. I still vividly remember hearing it for the first time on the radio, and beingexcited by the sounds and concept of the album. It was a truly progresssive album in its time and while it has been surpassed many times, it still sounds fresh and innovative now. A final warning to prog-metal vocalists- don't sound like 'Piltdown Man'. Too many do!
