5 stars Release of 2019? Yes. Why? Where do I start? The double CD is the pinnacle of IQ's illustrious career so far, they have produced some fine,fine symphonic prog and nearly produced as good as this with Subterranea...but not quite. This CD flows and is quite simply a CD to compare with the great releases of 1973 & 1974 - and this release has a length greater than TFTO! The Bass/drums are straight from White/Squire circa 1974 and the keyboard work is more like Emerson than any other IQ release. CD1 is virtually over before you know it (immersed in bliss) and gives us the first lengthy magnum opus (For Another Lifetime) (very IQ retrospective but sublime), which is merely the tasty starters for DISC II - The Great Spirit Way! - Sweet flange-lips, I loved the track from listen 1 - but it has grown on me in the past three weeks - Best Prog Epic since Awaken? Aye it is that good.... I love the vocals throughout - and the Yes tribute song - (Fallout) - seals the deal - Buy this CD and play it till you realise a lot of other stuff in the past 30 years is lacking the bombastic essence of true Symphonic Prog - not this - FIVE HUNDRED STARS....
