5 stars The Fountain Beyond the Sunrise is probably one of the most under appreciated prog masterpieces out there. From when I first listened to the album two years ago, I've been hooked... I find it difficult to go through a week without listening to it. The main criticism this album receives is its studio recording quality... and I'll admit, it's not perfect, but that's because Kyrie Eleison bought a 9-track recording device only to find it didn't work, and under the pressures of deadlines, they were forced to use the old 2-track device. If anything, knowing the history of the band and the challenges they faced brings about the emotions in the musicians even further. Nevertheless, in that sense, they probably could have recorded it a little better had they the opportunity, but even with that in mind I would still undoubtedly consider this a masterpiece as the recording quality isn't so bad that it takes away from the brilliance of the pieces. It just feels like they are playing live!

Give it a listen. Perhaps even a few listens. Or if you're me, perhaps a few hundred listens because you just can't hold yourself back.

After listening to Kyrie Eleison I find it exceptionally difficult to find other prog that can match its greatness...
