3 stars I got my first copy of this shortly after it was released, and still listen to it today. True, this is not Yes, or Genesis, or "real" progressive music, in that the tracks are short, etc, but this is just a fun album, period. If you want traditional progressive music, check out their album "Hope", which is a concept album from 1977 - ahead of "The Wall" by Pink Floyd (although not as hard edged, for sure). "Silly Boys" is my favorite track on the album, with the backward masking sounds, and funky guitar and lyrics. "Older" is a good rocker, which I believe got some radio airplay, and is just a great sounding song. "Everybody Took a Holiday" has some great lyrics, that compel you to sing along. "Dear Christine", "Tokeymor Fields" and "Cherie" are more pop oriented love songs, but the lyrics and music combine nicely. Not a traditional progressive album, but a very fun one. If I had to pick someone to compare Klaatu to, I would say Marillion in Misplaced Childhood - shorter songs, but creative and pleasant to listen to. You won't find 20 minute opus magnums here, but you will find a set of fun little songs. I'll give it a 3, since it has stood the test of time for nearly 30 years.
