1 stars This is possibly the most cheerfully inept album in prog-rock. And despite my one-star rating, I very much encourage my colleagues to check this one out. If it wasn't so amusing, it would almost be painful to listen to. And I'm not being facetious: this really is one of the most amusing albums I've ever heard. In fact, there is something I have always wanted to say about an album, but never found one to say it about, until now: hey, guys - the emperor has no clothes!! I can't believe that anyone could be bamboozled by this. Throughout most of the three overly (!!) extended "compositions" (a term to be used loosely here...), it sounds very much like they are making it up as they go along. The lyrics are among the silliest I've ever heard, and the vocals - sung with SO much sincerity - are so bad they're laughable. In addition, there are places where the production makes the band sound like a prog garage band making a demo. Despite a few (too few) listenable sections, this is an object lesson in how NOT to make a prog-rock album. (As an aside, the description of Versus X comparing them to Crimson, ELP and VDGG is a serious insult to those bands...)
