3 stars An interesting compilation, but one would wonder whether it's the compilation or the entire band's catalogue messed up. We have a few proto-symph tunes ("America, "Hang On To A Dream", "Rondo"), a few psych pieces ("The Thoughts Of Emerlist Davjack", "Diamond Hard Blue Apples Of The Moon", two concerto excerpts (a bit boring, frankly) and "The Cry Of Eugene" which is something in between the first two.
