4 stars To give this four or three stars? Well, I feel inclined to give it three but the concept and ambition forces a four. Intended, I suspect as a single track, this reasonably short album has 43 parts that make up one 38 minute song. Just that the song as it is presented in the order it is isn't that fantastic - musically yeah it's pretty sound, there's plenty that gets said, but the short track length and noticeable transitions between tracks makes the flow unsettling, (which is a part of prog I'll admit, but here seems forced and a bit lazy). The four star rating stands because ideally it can be reordered in almost any way and still make cohesive sense. That shows ambition and for a surprising change,quite a bit of audience participation - though this novelty isn't enough to really pull together the effort however vast into a masterpiece. It's clever and instrumentally engaging at times, though it may not appeal to everyone on equal terms, myself - I don't really love it, but its showing that there is still uncovered territory in prog land, and it's always good to see something original come out.
