4 stars I came across this album at an ELP convention in 1995.On the table where it was being sold there was a sign 'Is This A Brain Salad Surgery For The Nineties?''. Well I purchased it (mainly for the wonderfull artwork not the sign) and when I got home gave it a whirl.Very impressed. It's clear that this guy wears his influences on his sleeve (Keith Emerson,ELP,King Crimson(early years)) but importantly he knows what he is doing,As the sleevenotes say he uses traditional techniques and instruments that give this recording an 'old' feel (which I like).And look at the array of talent that plays on this.It's almost a who's who of Swedish prog rock! Best track on the album is the (nearly) 20 minuter 'The Cathedral' allowing Par Lindh to display his ability on various pipe and electronic organs.There's also an excellent version of that old prog fave 'Night On Bare Mountain' with a new section added.Very Emersonesque. Overall this an album that will definetly appeal most to ELP and King Crimson fans although certainly won't alienate fans of other prog bands.
