5 stars When at the end of listening to an album you canīt help yourself but to listen to it again and again and know you have a great album. When almost 30 years after discovering said album you realize that you love it as much as you did then, and that you have listened to it on a regular basis ever since, then thereīs no doubt you are in the presence of something very rare: a timeless classic! This is an immaculate masterpiece where every song is perfect...memorable, with wonderful musicianship,sublime vocals that defy description (and belief had i not heard live bootlegs from the era), crisp and ahead of itīs time production and exquisite songwriting. This album would fall on the crossover category of Prog because it includes AOR, symphonics, baroque influences, pop balladry, hard-rock and an above average level of complexity in arrangements and composition. It is incredibly sophisticated considering that it was realeased in 1975 and the sound remains up-to-date. I have only one advice: LISTEN TO IT. And if the vocals donīt suit you at first but you like the music, then give it a few more may just fall in love with the album!
