5 stars Their Masterpiece! and beesstt effort!!. Clearly, I agree...not a really weak point in the whole album.

Probably, without a doubt their most Symphonic. Less Folk overtones, and complex at times...I will placed them in this period, somewhere between the acustic side of Yes and the softer/more accessible side of GG.

IMHO, the best track "Lament" a 10+ minutes piece...that starts with wind instrumentation (like out of the vaults of GG), becoming progressively more acustic just to get back on track with the medieval feel that carry you over the entire album!!..Call me crazy, but I even hear some Mike Olfield mixed inn; however, bear in mind that this album was from 1974...so, maybe MO had some Gryphon influence after all?!..:o).

A must for any prog lover, especially for those who are hunting for musical Gems for their collection.
