5 stars Hi all, this is my first review (so be gentle). Seeing that this was my first venture into the Prog world back when it was released and a year or so later seeing them do this album live as well as their next release, Tales, which was my first concert of any kind, this had to be the first review.

Nothing more needs to be said regarding the three songs that has not already been said. I still can remember my first listen and thinking after the first few minutes that something was wrong with the "record" player, but it was just a totally different fret/chord work approach and sound that I had never heard before. Then when Wakeman's full bodied sound of the church pipe organ filled the room, it was all over from there and I could not get enough.

5 Stars which I do not give out lightly.
