4 stars Probably the Volta's most complete and well rounded album. A lot more meaningful progressive moments here than like in the past when it was just filler or bombast. Tetragrammaton is one of the better monments of Volta's career, which has all the ingredients you would expect in a prog epic, just with some TMV flavor. I still think that they have a couple masterpieces up their sleeve in the future, and I must say that this one comes awfully close. A very enjoyable record, something that is not easily said with TMV in the same breath. It is probably closer to 4.5 stars than 4.
