5 stars It is hard to simply overlook this album in regard to any deliberation on "prog rock" and it can't be easily overestimated. It might not have been the very first "progressive" rock album or it might had some inconsistencies in its production. But, the matallic frenzy of "Schizoid", the "symphonic" epics of "Epitaph" and the title track, the pastoral ease of "Wind" and the ambient experiment of "Moonchild" helped made an authoritative blueprint of all the "ambitious" rock works to come, up until now. If an alien comes asking "what's that so-called progressive rock music?" - you can hardly give 'em a better testimony than this one.
