5 stars This is structurally very much like a symphony. One must admire how the band crafts such a work, with recurring melodies intricately and subtly woven into other sections of the album. From the perspective of a prog fan, the dull or excessive moments are few and far between. The album should be listened to in its entirety for the listener to fully understand it, and they will pick up on some wonderful examples of musicianship. Aside from a few sections, the album is certainly more listenable and digestible than many other prog rock albums. Too many listeners get hung up on its reputation I believe.
