1 stars This album has no meaning, no concept and no purpose: it's just a bunch of random melodies played with random instuments and glued together. There are a few good ideas here and there, but that doesn't make it a good album: there is no cohesion at all. And he managed to record almost FIFTY minutes of it (don't ask me how).

This is possibly the most overrated prog album. I simply cannot understand all the hype. Personally, I find the >4 average rating of it offensive: it is offensive towards the real prog bands.

tl;dr Listen to this album. And after that, toss it out of the window.
