WOW. I can't believe I did not review this masterpiece yet! This is an absolute gem, a once in a lifetime achievement for this band of musicians. This album is a classic: it is a great improvement on the previous albums which are absolutely good, but not as great. The rythm is everything there, with great bass and wow: the vocals are awesome!

Just sit down, and when you hear the beginning of "From Under" you know you listen to something special, something different, something great! "Chocolate Kings" is PFM greatest achievement, with "Jet Lag" and "L'isola di Niente" as close second/third. But don't be fooled: this one is their peak, this is their time of glory. This is the pinnacle of inspiration, imagination and one of my all-time top ten, along with Camel, Harmonium and some other rare first-class near perfect gems.
