5 stars As I reach my 100th listening of the glorious album I find it difficult to find how anyone isn't blown away by it. Those who think that there is to much filler I cannot understand each piece is perfect as it is, beautiful instrumentation, exquisite playing, wonderful lyrics and one of the most glorious voices in all of music - I would have enjoyed more I'm sure. I wonder for those who think it to much excess also think that of the symphonies of Mahler, Bruckner, etc. A message is being delivered and it takes the exact right amount of notes to give it, the musicians who find the message only need to control the speed with which the notes are delivered and Sylvan nailed it perfectly. I've been lighting to prog since first hearing In the Court or Starship Trooper don't know which came first into my life. But was permanently hooked by Heart of the Sunrise. This album is firmly placed in my top 10 all time. It is to me the essence of Progressive music and I delight with new subtleties with every listen, much like the first 20 years of listening to Awaken & Supper's Ready. This is an album for every lover of music and is to be listened to, not background filler or sort for just for the adrenaline rush, though they are there!!! Give it 5 listens and see if your not hooked!
