3 stars I've owned or listened to all 10 albums from 1976-1987, i.e., TOMAI to Gaudi (so not counting 1983 "Best of"). My favourites are I Robot, Pyramid, Turn of a Friendly Card, and Eye in the Sky. Don't have Eve anymore, don't remember liking it. Found albums after 'Eye' (1982) had one or two good songs, but generally very disappointing/not in the same league.

Pyramid is not quite as consistenly good as I Robot, and agree it's more art rock (or pop) than progressive. However, it does have a bunch of memorable good tunes/lyrics. If you're into jogging, I particularly recommend 'Hyper Gamma Spaces' for your IPOD/walkman. It has a driving, relentless, hypnotic, trance like beat, that will help take you through any 'pain barrier', and I used it successfully to help train for running the Marathon.

Not essential, but good to very good.
