5 stars There are two types of prog (or any type of music) fans. There are those who like the same thing (here... one or more subgenres of classic 70's prog), over and over again, with little changes in this or that nuance... and there are listereners who always expect and need new music, original music, that has the sparkle of creation embodied into a new being. We could call this second type of listener: the progressive listener.

The first type mentioned here will not enjoy this one. No further comments. However the second type of listerens will most likely enjoy this one. Of course, that doesn't mean that every musical experimentation would and should be appreciated. What we actually look for is: new music, with an internal coherence, that says something in its own and unique way, with the help of its original structure.

"Storm Corrosion" is probably one of the best records and pieces of music ever. Imposing its own rhythm, with its own voice, it manages to reach a very archaic realm of meaning during its relationship with the listener.

Phenomenologically, the album has this alternation, this permanent forebringing and withdrawal from and in-to the light. There are moments where this bidirectional movement is very fast and blunt, and there are moments which require and have a build-up behind them, in order to show themselves gently, poetically, but firmly and... here-to-stay.

This is on of the few albums that has an idea and not a concept: the idea of un-becoming, of what is after one's own peak (of the self).

Wonderfully recorded, marvellously played, brilliantly composed.

Five slash five.
