4 stars This album could fit almost perfectly as a disc 2 for the previous "Days of Future Passed" (if this one was not so conceptual, of course). The major difference is the absence of the orchestra which gave "In Search of the Lost Chord" a more rocky sound and that's also fine.

The songs:

'Departure' and 'Ride my see-saw' compound truely only one fair and powerful opening track and then the listener's attention is totally attracted to the album; 'Dr. Livingstone, I presume' is a real prog-song of the average type; 'House of 4 doors, parts 1 & 2' are great tracks with good singing and voices;

'Legend of a mind' is the most psychedelic track, unforgettable when we remind the figure of the guru Timothy Leary;

'Voices in the sky" is a kind of classical MB's ballad and the soft "The best way to travel" is agreeable but loses a bit with the introduction of spacecraft sound effects;

'Visions of Paradise' is just pleasant while "The actor" and "The word" are the weakest songs; "Om" is a mix of psychedelism and art-rock that does a fair ending to the work.

Minus 1-star for the weakest tracks. Total: 4.
