5 stars I dont know if it is prog and I dont care. It's hard to give this album 5 stars because many people dont like hammill and I wouldn't say this album is essential for them, but it is also hard not to give it 5 stars because Over is such a great album. If you already like hammill, or even can stand hammill and like emotional music, then this album is absolutely essential. This is one of the most emotional, soul-baring albums I have ever heard and it comes from one of the most expressive vocalists in progressive rock. It is a breakup album and I'll admit that I have to be in the right mood to enjoy it, but I think that is the case with many very emotional albums. I would say that this album is essential because even if you arent a fan of hammill you can connect emotionally with this album much easier than some of his other works. However, if you are a fan of hammill then you have no place not owning this album. I took way too long to get this album because I was fooled by mediocre PA ratings (it's his highest on rym though), but really it is one of his best (probably the best but so hard to compare).
