5 stars Heavy Floyd. Mostly Autumn without cheesy lirics. Porcupine Tree without Wilson's ego. Eloy on speed. This is just a small sample of what you might find here. I first heard about Pure Reason Revolution on BBC2, on the Bruce Dickinson show "Masters of Rock". The song was the "The Intention Craft". That was an awsome track that had me searching for more from this band. It came as a surprise to me that the song wasn't present in this album, but one can easily realize why: it simply doesn't fit amidst the other masterpieces... This is just a stunning piece of work. The composition is sublime, and the playing masterful. You will not find a single solo in this album, but the heavy riffs and the carefuly knited electronic and orchestral parts sure make up for it. The Northfeld production is absolutely amazing, I can't find a glitch, there was clearly alot of attention put into the details, and, if what architect Mies van der Rohe said, that "God is in the details", then this surely is a divine work. Forget about Wilson and Stolt and their quarels about the future of Prog. Get your hands on Pure Reason Revolution and see what Prog should be like in the 21st Century.
