5 stars My introduction to "progressive" music, although I didn't know it at the time. I have been listening to this album as long as I remember and the only other albums that recieved heavier circulation through my early childhood were "abbey Road" and "Let it Be" by the Beatles. While technically this may not be a true "Prog" album, it sure comes damn close. The use of the orchestra as well as a coherent concept make this a true masterpiece. An extremely important album to say the least. The Moodies created an album that not only has stood the test of time but provided a true bridge from adventurous psychadelic rock to prog. There is not a weak track on the album making it a treat to listen to through it's entirety. other concept albums that have followed fall through with their complex stories and granduer. This album is brilliant in it's simplicity, and still continues to impress me every time I listen. Essential for any prog fan not only for it's historical factor, but it's timelessness and brilliance.

"Cold hearted orb which rules the night, removes the colours from our sight, red is gray and yellow white, but we decide which is right and which is an illusion"
