4 stars I have never made up my mind whether "Ile De Fievre" was a great album, or not. It does have one of the greatest prog songs ever written also entitled "Ile De Fievre". But, after this monster, the album never quite recovers. Sure, "Ile De Fievre" is worth $16, but it definitely goes by too quickly with its inspired playing influenced by GENTLE GIANT and KING CRIMSON. The rest of the album is okay; In fact, most bands would love to have this material. But, compared to "Ile De Fievre", the rest of the album is no match. Maybe the band should have put their monster composition as the last song, rather than the first, so the album would build-up to an incredible climax. You have been warned! :)
