5 stars What a wonderful album!! If you have never checked this out, do it soon. But be prepared to put in a lot of effort to gain a complete understanding of what is here. This is a long album and has a lot to offer. But once you appreciate it, you will return to it again and again. Highlights: Many! "As the World", "The Cheese Stands Alone", "One For the Show" among others. And do not let me forget- "Never the Same" which I may have played at my funeral. Lowlights? None. Now, I am not a realy fan of Gentle Giant, which this is often compared to, but the textures, the moods, the time changes, the lyrics, the music.... just great. A complex and wonderful album that deserves a higher rating than many give it. I have no misgivings with presenting this with one of my rare 5-stars (#20 out of 143 reviews).
