5 stars This album is a giant. It is one of those albums that I could never imagine being without in my collection of favorites. The band had matured here into a pure progressive rock and rock force that few could or in future would be able to match. Spooling this album up to listen to is like having one of your oldest and dearest friends over for a couple of drinks. The emotions and musical tides that run through this music are phenominal. At times the music is delicate and fragile and at times it is bombastic and full of sound. I was at a crossroads with the previous album as to whether to award it 5 stars however on listening to this album I understand really what the 5 star rating is for. I'm not going to do a track by track analysis of this album as, to me, that would be a pointless exercise. From the mellotron and church organ opening the album to the bombastic, Hackett laced, ending this album is a full on masterpiece. There are no throw away tracks here, A very very solid masterpiece that every lover of music should own irrelevantly of what type of or genre of music he or she prefers.
