4 stars I would say the band's 2nd best album, behind Awake, even though it's getting the same number of stars. This is a very good album, with no real bad tracks. Although, the strong tracks on Awake are better than the strong tracks here, if that makes sense.

This album is often considered a highlight in the field of progressive rock, and it should. At the time, it was considered very groundbreaking and gave the band huge success. There's impressive playing all around.

The biggest thing that keeps this album from being extraordinary is the cheese factor. Too many of the songs, while complex, delve into minutes of extra unnecessary playing.

However, despite these bad remarks, a highly recommend the album. There are many very stunning and beautiful sections, like the verse at the end of Metropolis. It is an important album in the field of progressive metal, one that no fan of prog should miss out on.
