5 stars Since it's inception, this record proved the world the technical capabillities and the out-of- this-world essence, sadly as many bands in the late 80's, the record faded away very fast, however, the quality and tightness of the music made it survive and beacme a trademark in sound and music, yes, some may laugh about it, but this record set the path for so many bands, even DREAM THEATER into the 90's. First, the record got attention beacuse of the marvellous cover of ASTRONOMY DOMINE, and got a fair MTV airplay, enough to make the curious buy the record (me i have to accept). Anyway, the record is a sci-fi intervention, a musical statement that starts with the "unknown knows", a semi-cyberpunk aproach mixed with floyd's elements, and to be honest, the whole record shows a similar pressence, with the excpetion of "pre-ignition", an obscure song, with so many good elemnts to list here, perhaps, the most "deep" song is the last one, sub-effect, a glory song for the sci-fi. Now, if you add the great "avant-garde" art of the record, you have one of the most perfect and naive records from a forgotten era. a must buy, and not only for the "metal-head", this is true prog on LSD. enjoy
