5 stars THE GEESE AND THE GHOST is the most recent addition to my ever growing Progressive collection. I started with Pink Floyd and then Yes, and then Genesis. And then God said, let there be ANTHONY. And it was so. And then God heard Anthony, and God knew that it was good. This record must have taken months, if not years to record and produce. It would probably be too expensive to do today. Phillips uses full orchestration, layers and layers of guitars, a choir, a church organ, and lots of other fine musicians. Though one wonders why - Anthony is credited for playing 19 instruments. The standout track on this hour-long record is "Henry; Portraits from Tudor Times" Part 4, "The Triumphant Return" is moving beyond words. Turn your speakers up to 11 when you play this. It will alert the paparazzi!
