5 stars Oh, you can find yourself to be listening this title track a lot if you don't watch your back. It's the one of few tracks which took me to prog music. By that time I didn't knew it, but now I know some facts, so I can say that Salisbury stands as their best album. For me of course. If they just somehow put there Magician's Birthday, Return to Paradise and July Morning, this would be the best album, definitely. But I know, fairy tales vanished long time ago.

Epic feeling from eponymous track makes other ones to act like fillers, which isn't true. They're just in a shade, so it's unfair if someone do it like that. Try some day listen only to others and you will see. Where "Easy Living" gave me just rock feeling (not much prog, FOR ME here, don't blame me please, at least not you Easy Livin' admin), High Priestes (for example) is good example. Isn't it ?

With this album, my ears has entered new era, prog music and this is all thanks to my father. Who gave me this CD. I suspect him that it was some kind of bait, part of a bigger plan (well, I'm suspicious in general), but it worked. And works, four years has passed, I'm mature, young man who still listens this music. Orchestral parts are very good in Salisbury and keyboards do their job. I know that UH changed singers a lot, but this one stands before them all.

"As time passed, and all too fast..."
