5 stars 3:47 EST by Klaatu is in my book, an undoubtable classic. The beautiful harmonies, the powerful guitar sound, the rich keyboards, all of it comes together perfectly to create an amazing piece of art. This album was the one that made the group famous, mostly because of rumours that they were The Beatles. We now know that those rumours aren't true, but this album still might as well have been a Beatles album, it not being one doesnt make it any worse. Just like in any Beatles album, this album has zero filler, all 8 tracks are pure gems. One thing that does seperate them from The Beatles though is the fact that this album is far more progressive than anything that The Beatles have ever done, especially "Little Neutrino", an epic that clocks in at almost 8 1/2 minutes, longer than any song by The Beatles. All of the songs have much more progressive sound than The Beatles, with constant key changes and complex rhythms. Some of my favourite tracks include "California Jam", "Sub Rosa Subway", "Doctor Marvello", and "Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft". All in all, this is an amazing album that would make a great addition to any record collection.
