3 stars Rating for Recycled was, before mine, 4,69! So here's the very first less favourable point of view - in fact I can't listen the whole album through without headache. I don't quite understand why this is considered as a prog masterpiece. It would be exactly albums like this one that might some day make me sick and tired of the whole genre.

The opening track takes your breath away and the rollercoaster ride begins. The problem, for me, is that the speed of the ride - the same motifs appearing again and again - doesn't come down until the lovely final song 'It's All Over'. After Remember The Future (which I started to enjoy immediately some weeks ago and have learned to like it even more) I'm very disappointed at the SOUND of Recycled. It's too loaded and too full of synths; only in the final song there's that honest guitar rock feel I really can enjoy at ease.

The edition I listened to includes the whole album twice, the second round being the original (unreleased) mix that didn't yet please the band. Well, I rather listen to it, because the music was full enough without adding choral and orchestral stuff. Too much on my plate. (Edit: But I have later come to a conclusion that this deserves three stars. I was really too harsh on it at first!)
