4 stars I love this album. But at the same time, I often find it one of the most difficult albums to listen to all the way through. This is some of the most truly progressive music recorded since the seventies. And that's part of the problem. The music is constantly in motion. The band never seems to sit in a groove for mor than a bar or two. Look away for a second, and you will lose your place. But that's also the main charm of the album as well. The complexity, coming at a time when most music was completely predictable, was intoxicating.

My favorite songs on this album are A Little Nonsense, Here I Am, and the entire A Suite For Everyman.

This album isn't as strong as the Echolyn albums to follow, but it is still a valuable gem.

Evolver | 4/5 |
