4 stars This album starts out with a keyboard stronghold similar to sounds of Zappa, a song called Crossfire at 2:54. out of 10 I give it a 6.4.

track 2 Interlude 1. An even shorter acoustic guitar piece completely different setting than previous, very nice due to it's length at 1:31 I leave it unratable.

track 3 Natural selection, very jazz laiden yet not . Keyboards again and synths and a great drum kit going on. Keys over diff keys abound with a bass keeping up then an electric guitar takes over the course to a calm, floppy keys with flute (I believe keys). Not jazz, very technical drum key section then we change again to a solo piano. Change again to very synthed, though very technical I'm having trouble finding my place, then skillful, enter acoustic spanish sounding guitar with some floating keys, bass chords, not sure, I think I got lodt at the drug store. At 8:11 though very instrumentaly sounds, the composition eludes me. 5.8 of 10

track 4 Variations on A Theme by Brian Smith at 9:42 Has some highlights on guitar but again misplaced on complexion, Very nice finish though, 7 of 10

track 5 A Story of Mysterious Forest the 18:45 version (24:24 on Ride a Camel album).Start this megastructure with swirling keys very subtle with acoustic guitar so quiet......drums and keys enter and pick up the pace, brilliant sound! Harpsichord in refrains! comes to something any Pink Floyd Richard Wright fan would adore. So quietly an electric guitar enters playing some of the soothingest notes I've ever heard.mellow!!,>>brings you to a peaceful bliss till 7:30 sound the drums electric guitar and backing keys accentuate this performance!!!! Just brilliant. keys continue a nice mellow pace to electric storms back in OMG.<track 5 Interlude 2 at 0:32 unratable. Very nice acoustic.

All in all I give this album 4 stars based on title track, because it is an excellent addition.
