5 stars At last!!!! i can understand this album, my first vacation time since six years have helped i think, but i think that a personal state of mind back in 2004 overshadowed my full appreciation of this great album, on the other hand I was Highly reluctant to hear "The Harvest of Souls" because of the usage of the word "America" to make reference to the country of the United States. I live in South America, wich is named, not because it is at the south of the United States, the name is because is the southern part of America. Now, leaving behind all my regrets, i can enjoy freely this masterpiece of progrock, Harvest of Souls has some moments that reminds me of "The Last Human Gateway" the jewel of the "Tales of the Lush Attic" album, the last song was heavily inspired in on The Gates of Delirium by Yes. I really like the way that Michael Holmes (in his producer category) makes reference to the mantric rythym (Mantric Rythms are a trade mark of I.Q.!!!!!!) of "Born Brilliant" at the penultimate section fo Harvest of Souls, that is really great, great!!. "Sacred Sound" is another solid opener like "The wrong side of weird", "Frecuency" and "The Darkest Hour" last i like this album very much!!
