5 stars The Perfect Album

So perfect that the band was never to match its greatness again. They dont make albums like these any more; there aint any fillers here. People can pan it for being too "commercial" or not enough "progressive rock", but how can you not like tunes that stick in your mind, long after?

18 million albums sold so there really is no need to explain its greatness: "operatic" composition and harmony, contrasting vocals, cynical, and whymsical and yet humorous and uplifting lyrics.

The last 4-5 songs are so beautifully arranged in order to present the hope of a generation: from the reality of life to the prayer of desperation.

And despite many reviewers criticizing it,

"And now it's all been said If you must leave then go ahead Should feel sad But I really believe that I'm glad Yes I really believe that I'm glad",

one of the best songs. they dont write them like they used to

The Charles Dickens of Pop/Rock? Go on, have a cry to it, it will be good for your soul
