4 stars What happens if you put a list of great musicians together in one project and make an album ? The pretentious title says it all. No honestly, I don't think it's meant to sound pretentious (or is it ?). Anyway I must say, it's not really so far from the truth. This is a very nice album. But not quite the greatest thing on earth or something like that. I have to divide this album in two parts or categories. There is the opening of the first three songs which is absolutely incredible. Modern man and Ceremony are two of the nicest songs I know especially thanks to the unbelievable guitarwork in these songs. Then we have the "middle part" of the album that lasts until the final epic number. I'm not too thrilled about the middle part. It's not bad, I don't want to go too far in minor, but it's not impressive. An exception in this middle part is Circus in the sky with a great guitar solo of Nick Barrett. Then we have the title track, consisting of 6 parts, at the end of the album. A grand finale that is very much worthwhile.

These two different "faces" of the album makes it hard to give the final judgement. Because only half of it is very good, I can't go further than 4 stars, but I absolutely believe they deserve those 4 ! All in al this is a model album for neo progressive rock. And since I like neo progressive, I also like this a lot.

4 stars Oooh this is a good one for any of you who love good neo-prog. I was pleasantly surprised (having never heard of Martin Darvill) but buying it because of the amazing line-up of "friends" he has assembled. Anything with Nick Barrett gets my vote! John Wetton gets a long suite at the end if you're a ... (read more)
