5 stars How can I rate this album anything other than five stars?

Sometimes you listen to an album and the top of you head floats away and everything changes. Forever.

I class 21st Centrury Schizoid Man as one of the finest tracks ever cut. This is what "far out" really meant.

Sorry, but I like Epitaph and Moonchild. I even sing them to myself sometimes. Those who comaplin about Moonchild forget that this is, after all, a progressive album. Mimicking the structure of a classical symphony, the quiet and reflective pieces are essential to achieving the maximum impact of the frenzy of 21st Century Schizoid Man and the huge grandeur of the title track.
