5 stars What a way to bow out. A band that might as well have called themselves Janus, Perhaps brilliantly brought old school space and even fusion mores into the modern age through energetic and cutting edge math rock for three years, and their fairly literal swan song - for all three of their LPs are single songs, even this one with its delineations - is the kind of album prog bands dream of exiting stage left having made.

The "Master Destroyer" sequence starts out by unleashing a strange sounding attack, as if a RIO band got into whacking listeners with 2X4s, before stepping back starting with "Butterfly Mirror"; from there, this is a smooth, relaxing, yet perky and pumped up album that provides endless enjoyment. There's not a single boring part or poorly played instrument. The whole suite is fairly diverse yet ultimately, in that masterful way, cohesive with itself and with the earlier work by the band that they are building off of towards new directions. Dare I compare this with "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"? Well, I just did. But don't worry about comparisons with giants or whether time will be kind enough to Perhaps to reward their excellent record with legendary status... just know that it is, *ahem*, perhaps worthy.
