5 stars Basically, this album is part of history, it is one of those things i call "missing pieces" of prog rock. One band not many people know about, releases only one album, and that's enough to put it onto a legend level (other bands in this category: Älgarnas Trädgård, Mongol, etc.). This album is really dark, really atmospheric, with soothing melodies and with comnplex rhythmic progressions. It can sound related to Gentle Giant or VdGG, but Island accomplishes something bigger, they have done a masterpiece, a Switzerland Prog-rock definitive gem!
