5 stars Simply their best album I have discovered "chocolate kings" many years ago and i was fascinated about the completeness. It's like a movie; even the songs stands for itself the whole album is really a "concept". Iwas a terrible fan of pfm in my youthness; now i have no great simpathy for them because there was more professionality then ideas but this album is so fiery, musical, emotional and whit big intentions that is no a surprise the fact that in 1972 rise up in the english poll at n.12!!!! Starting from first track "From under", with some reminiscences of past works and some kingcrisonesque flavours and with lyrics so good coloured and full of pictures so well designed, you arrive at the top with the great "out of the roundabout", maybe the greatest pfm song ever made. Great sounds, great Lanzetti voice (a la Roger Chapman and not as all says a la Gabriel) and over all Premoli's hammond and rhodes.
