4 stars Well, in my opinion music deserves maximum 3 stars, since it's quite enjoyable, even it is boring. However I should award the aim of this record, which was to be musical illustration of Terry Pratchett's Discworld Cycle. These books represent all progressive values: they are hilarious, contain intellectual allusions, present our basic ideas in the light of humour, providing us with critical knowledge of world that surround us. And this record served its purpose - depicting this world - very well. Each song represents main characters of following books, starting from Colour Of Magic, ending with Small Gods. They differ in moods, are quite simple, but instantly we catch the main features of mentioned book, e.g. the grim mood of Macbethian Wyrd Sisters. So this record smoothly corresponds with the Discworld cycle, which I already proved progressive. Therefore I grant it with 5 stars note for it, and an average 4 stars - essential addition to any prog music collection.
