3 stars Ok, this is the musical equivalent of an 'expanded trip', and the album makes no excuses for that. Yes, the first part does almost rip off Floyd's 'Another Brick In The Wall'; the guitar riff is strikingly similar. The second part also sounds similar. The third and fourth parts are very repetitive and the narration running through it could doubtlessly put some people off. I, however, love the album! There is some wonderful guitar work from Wilson on both the first two parts towards the end. The distinctive PT atmosphere is omniprescent throughout and the keyboards (almost all played by Wilson too) provide a wonderful, sometimes eerie, backdrop to the narration, which I personally find very effective. What it lacks in diversity and melody it makes up for in - again that word - atmosphere! An album to listen to with the lights off, or at least down low. Also good through headphones. Production, as with all PT releases, is excellent. If you like ambient,dreamy soundscapes, and if you like PT, then this is definitely worth having. Three stars, though four wouldn't be out of the question.
