5 stars I was quite amazed to see that the popular voting in the Progarchives put two of my most favourite albums in the same order I would put them-- the first is Close to the Edge and the second is Selling England by the Pound. Other people ranked it this way, I guess because these two albums have deep appeals. Both of them appear simple, yet both of them are masterpieces. All of the tracks of Selling England by the Pound are extremely enjoyable (even More fool me). But the best of all of them is the Cinema Show for sure, followed by Firth of Fifth, Dance with the Moonlit Knight. Many people don't like the Battle-- but I like this odd ball very much. My only complain about this album is sound level adjustment. Hackett's riff in Dance with the Moonlit night oddly sound louder than other instruments (though this is not really a spoiler). My suggestion is the album could have sounded even more majestic if they tweaked these sound levels a bit.
