5 stars I'm no expert on either prog rock or fusion, but I've heard quite a bit and there aren't many albums in the genre(s) which I can honestly say pains me that most people will never hear and be able to appreciate the beauty of. Feels Good To Me is one of those albums.

I admit it's actually not that long since I discovered it, so obviously there's a chance I'm biased since it's all new to me, but I have a good feeling that I'll still enjoy it half a century from now, if I'm still alive, that is. I've known of Bruford's One Of A Kind for a while, so there are no huge surprises here other than the vocals, which totally blow me away. Even upon several consecutive listenings to the final track, Peacock's voice still gives me chills, especially after the instrumental section . I'm not sure why she's so loud in the mix at times, but whatever the reason is, I'm glad that's how it is. It sounded a bit odd to me at first, but it has really grown on me. All of the musicians do an extraordinary job.

I don't personally rate the albums I listen to, but I'd estimate this (as well as One Of A Kind) to be at least in my top 10 of the about 700-800 prog and fusion releases I've heard. In my opinion it's a true masterpiece that should be anyones collection, not just fans of the genre.
