5 stars One of my first album purchases as a teenager in 1974, largely on the merits of review in a local music paper 'Go-Set'(?).

From the opening lines of Dancing to the closing of Aisle this was different to any other music I had heard to this time (OK, my source for new music would have been largely AM radio (no FM in Oz then).

There is really nothing new to add to the previous reviews about this album. This is about as good as it gets for the genre.

4.8 Stars - More Fool Me lowers the score slightly but the ballad does allow the senses to recover from what has just passed (peaking with the guitar solo on Fifth of Firth) in readiness to what is just about to follow.

An interesting minor point...SEPTP has 53:22 minutes of music. This is more than some CDs of today and much more than many contemporary vinyl recordings which were typically around 40 minutes. Close To the Edge (Yes) has only 37:56 minutes.

KeepItDark | 5/5 |
