4 stars What's wrong with the abrupt changes of rythms and interleaving tunes in "Music frome the Balcony" ? How a property that is regarded as richness for many other prog tunes is herein regarded as rubish ? Let's call it Eclectic prog, let's give peace to Mike Oldfield and let's enjoy the experiment to it's real extend. Of course this big track need replay and absolute attention. No way to listen while surfing the web ... But, sorry to say, there is more consistency in it than in the whole Amarok thing. This track alone deserve five stars.

For the five first tracks I can only agrre with the rest of you other reviewers ; the only acceptable one being "Heaven's Open" with a great use of piano and great dynamics.

The other four tracks drag the rating down, obviously, and need no comments. I give a four.
