Prog Reviewer
4 stars I first listened to this album in 1981. An older cousin lent me this album then, and also other albums like ELP`s "Brain Salad Surgery" and others.

Maybe the band was still trying to create their own identity in sound in this album, but there are very good songs like "The Barbarian", "Take a Peeble" (with a very good piano), "Knife Edge" (with a great "Baroque music" organ arrangement), "Three Fates" (with the use of a church organ) and "Lucky Man" (maybe the most known song of this album). The music in this album is maybe less interesting than "Tarkus", "Trilogy" and "Brain Salad Surgery", but it was a very good start for this band, IMO.
