3 stars I've been waiting for years for this CD. Parts of it are incredible, while other parts are eh able. Some of the songs are excellent - such as Overture/Whirlwind, Evermore, and Is It Really Happening? from the first main disc, and Return of the Giant Hogweed and Soul Sacrifice from the second (bonus) disc. However, there are two songs I don't like at all - Rose Colored Glasses is incredibly repetitive and grating and Salty Dog, the Procul Harem cover, which I have never cared for. The musicianship throughout is, as always, phenomenal, but I feel the material is more of a let down. Still, it is good prog with a good message.
