5 stars I really hate to review this album. There is nothing new I can add to the conversation. I can only say that I consider this to be the finest work in all of Progressive Rock (the title track in particular I consider one of the crowning musical achievements of the 20th century, no less!)

If you are a fan of complex music at all, you owe it to yourself to own this album. If you enjoy music with emotional highs and lows, you need to hear this. This album has been rated and/or reviewed 1053 times on this site, so I suspect that most everyone has heard it. If, however, you have been hiding under a rock, or possibly stubbornly ignoring this album due to its universal acceptance, you must listen. Right this second.

That is all.
