3 stars I've been waiting for this CD (along with"The Wake") for 4 long months (under some circumstances). Maybe that's why I've been expecting too much from this record. The opening track is pretty good (in my epic-chart it could take the 5th position, after "Harvest of Souls" by IQ,"Supper's Ready" by you-know-who, "Grendel" by you-know-number2 and "A Change of Seasons" by Dream Theater) , I especially adore "A mother's son , a father's pride" part. Tracks 2 and 4 show the Great English Sense of HumoUr; highly recommended for those who have it. "Awake ..." has dissapointed me at first time as I was expecting much darker track, "Dark Matter"-like. Now I like it, it's OK. And the closing epic has classic, Neo-Prog, Classic Prog, a lullaby, Punk-Rock section and even Blues! The whole record is good, I do like it , but it is too uneven. I don't like bonus- track, really; also I'd like to add that quality of this record is very lo-fi-ish as it was recorded "far too quickly". Though it is great in its own way and recommended for Neo-Prog/IQ fans
