4 stars Of course that

4(-) is the rating. Now why: Well, it's almost like typical "heeeevy" band from late60/early70 era, however, there's something more added. First - it's interesting, not boring, so it should be counted too. Also, it does not follow one pattern, over and over one structure of sound, it builds different visions and uses them cleverly through this album. Sound is not so clear, as Pink Floyd's records for example are, but it's Heavy Prog (it is, believe me, or after all, you don't have to, I'm not the one with big music knowledge, I'm just layin' my cards (feelings) on the table (review). Sax adds jazz feeling, but I just don't hear it here so much to be "normal" jazz prog. Something in between I suppose. Vocals are quite tiring, not so pleasant and also not so strong. Nothing big, they're not here all the time, but still, it could be done better.

Basically, it's average (3) album with something more, this unspecified flavour that makes it interesting and unique. Nothing extremely unique, as you can hear more and more albums in this genre, but unique enough to get itself to 4-star league.
