5 stars How nice it is to listen to an album with real songs and melodies for a change! Of course, with "real" I don't mean normal. The tracks have no limits and take many unexpected turns. The thing about this is that you get all used to these unexpected things and after some time this album is as obvious as any record. I bet many old proggers wish that they could listen to this album again for the first time, to hear these lovely compositions with "new ears". My best moment listening to the album was the third or maybe the fourth time when the songs were beginning to settle, when I still was surprised. At that point this album was almost a revelation, today it's "only" very very good. The opening track is in my opinion still the best of all progressive tracks, in every category there is.
