2 stars Again, I have to disagree with the majority of reviewers. THIS is exactly what I needed (not): a traumatizing mix of Van Der Graaf Generator and Gong. Jeez... Many years ago, I recovered (not unscathed) from the experience of aforementioned Gong and Van Der Graaf Generator (in my worst nightmares, Peter Hamill is still present). I believed and hoped that this style of "music" was extinct. But No... Introducing The Tangent... Although I hated it from the start, I listened to "A Place In The Queue" 6 times before writing this review (I think any reviewer should do that). Through the entire length of the album, I had the feeling that I am in a musical written by a schizophrenic on crack... I simply don't understand. Tillison, Reingold and company are exceptional musicians, gifted and very technical. Why can't they sing decent prog, in the old fashioned vein of Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd and the other classics is beyond me. In my opinion, they make fools of themselves. Pity... 5 stars for the technical capability and musical prowess, 2 stars for the music itself, if you call that music...
