5 stars Well I hate writing reviews but the low rating of this album convinced me to try and push it up. I almost bought this a while back but decided not to because of the one-star rating given by a collaborator I respect. Then I revisited this album yesterday after reading ProgJapan's review and additional ones posted after my first visit. So last night I decided to take the plunge. Glad I did. I have listened to it six times now and love it. Of course I was struck again how art is so subjective. This album is terrific in my humble opinion. I find the vocalist emotive with a wide range that I enjoy. Thank God he does not sound like everyone else. The keyboards are great, love the ever present mellotron. Guitars, drums, flute, etc... keep it very interesting. I do think the bass got lost in the mix but after almost 6 decades of loud music I have begun to lose those lower registers. The bass could be there for all I know. The sound/production are very clear. The songs show a nice range of styles and tempos. Great neo-prog. I really like this album. Highly recommended. Thanks ProgJapan for giving me the positive push.
