5 stars I'ts very hard for me to put down to words review for an album that I consider an ultimate prog-rock record,period!After 30 some years I still get same feeling of excitement every time I hear this masterpiece of modern music,and I am still listening to it a lot.With all due respect to some reviewers on this site I cannot understand anyone giving this album less than five stars,for this is a music of a past,present and future.Everything on this record is worked to perfection:masterfully composed songs,academic,yet passionate instrumental execution,top notch production and sleeve cover which is one of the best ever in all of the rock music.And now it's sonic brilliance is enhanced by remastered reissue of Derek Shulman's DRT Entertainment . Music here is so unique,no comparisons can be made to any other prog act,best way to describe it is symphonic in nature and pretty darn rocking in execution with liberal dose of neo-classical,baroque and medieval musical influences thrown in it. Although music is hard to get into,album sold over 100.000 copies as an import in US with no marketing support whatsoever,and to date remains band's best selling album.No serious record collector should be left withot this masterpiece.Most definitelythe best prog-rock record of all times.
