4 stars If you average Disc 1 which gets 5 stars, with Disc 2 which gets 3 1/2 stars, you come up with a solid 4 stars. Half a great album. I always have loved Disc one, but Disc 2 has always come across as very good filler. There are some great classic songs on Disc One, particularly the title track, Cuckoo Cocoon, In The Cage, Back In NYC, The Hairless Heart and the Carpet Crawlers. Disc two, while good, seems to lose direction, and is more filler, without any truly great songs; in fact It seems like the finale, it was taken straight from Brain Damage and Eclipse from PINK FLOYD'S Dark Side of the Moon finale. Overall, still far better than 99.99999% of the dribble out there pretending to be music, and still better than anything done post Hackett.
