5 stars And Pandora's Box was Opened....

How can anyone over the age of, well fill in the blank, not review this album. It combined the musical worlds that were of that era and took it to the next level. There are elements of folk, the fusion-improvisional jazz that was starting to develope, heavy metal that was beginning to emerge, of course a blend of classical music, and thought provoking lyrics.

The opening track, 21rst Century Schizoid Man, was shocking for the times with a maddening mix of metal and fusion. This led into Epitaph which is just perfect with Lake's vocals and that classical feel throughout. Moonchild seems to be a improvisional lead into the majestic Court. Nothing more can be said that han not been.

Is it musically perfect, no, but not far off. It's revelance is historical and the combination of the two is a 5.
