5 stars This is by far the best album this band ever created. Act One and Waters of Change are good too but they are not as complete as this one is. They sound like rehersals for the big one: Pathfinder! Yes, a true masterpiece of prog. If you only have one record or want to make aquaintance with BO the this is the place to start. The MacArthur's Park alone is such a stunning experience, I've heard several other performances of it but this my favourite. The band is here at its peak. The musicanship is flawless, simply great, the voice of Martin is solid and enjoyable, the compositions and the way they are treated is just perfect. There is nothing wrong in this album!

It is possible that somebody don't like this, I saw some such reviews up there, but anyway this is Essential piece of prog music, prog history, and a true masterpiece. So even if you don't get it only correct amount of stars is five!
