5 stars I agree with Ronen completely. This is one of the finest albums of all time and should be top 20 material. There is an astonishing variety of styles but the theme which runs through it all is the life of a man from beginning (Benedictus) to end (Journey's End). Blue Weaver takes over from Wakeman and stamps his mark on proceedings with some exquisite organ and mellotron work and the other four sing brilliantly and play a dazzling array of instruments including dulcimer and sitar. The are not afraid to use orchestrations and even a silver band! Highlights are Benedictus, New World and The Flower and the Young Man, but it's all good stuff. Magic!
