Everything has already been said about this iconic album, one of the most revered in the world, not only among us progheads. What the world doesn't know is that this was the first album I ever bought, with my pocket money at the age of fifteen, the LP that came with the posters and two stickers, what a luxury in those days.
How can anyone escape the powerful memories of young age, original soundtrack included ? (Who wants to?)

Global Appraisal

This record sounded extremely modern and innovative in 1973 and still today hasn't aged a bit; The production is credited to PF but is generally accepted the important role of Alan Parsons as engineer and not forgetting the less known intervention of the producer Chris Thomas in mixing duties and more.

Essential, influential, stupendous... I spare you the duplication of all the adjectives that have been applied, and sincerely, don't feel able to add anything new, just to share my appreciation.


The most advanced recording techniques of the time, the sonic experimentation by all members of the band, the extensive use of synthesizers (VCS3 and Synthi A) and tape loops, all contributed to the final result of what can be heard as an adventurous and nearly perfect album - Outstanding !

Quinino | 5/5 |
