1 stars I'll contradict everyone and state that it is a rather dull album in a sense that the songs all sound the same. 40 minutes into the album you are still not sure if they are on the first song. Sometimes they are jamming over the same chord for 10 minutes - not a whole lot of excitement, from a purely progressive point of view. A raw, repetitious, noisy mess that would appeal to those who like ritualistic three chord tunes played at max volume - a punk fan. Not for prog afficionados. If you are seeking loud prog music with a hard edge, try The Flower Kings for a much more rewarding listening experience.
