4 stars John already said facts before me (I'm not that good with facts anyway), so let's move to my thoughts and impression. This is a strange record (but after all, Michael Quatro himself isn't exactly usual artist), combining Rock, some Prog and also Pop (well, not that much here) & some Classical elements (especially in title track & Rockmaninoff's).

This title piece, In Collaboration With the Gods is a big piece. Switching three sides, one melodic (romantic, tears jerking, sad, whatever you call it), then some rocking parts (basic Rock riffs) and collage of some other sound (I heard The Beatles & Stairway to Heaven), or silence. Repeating these and making quite nice composition. It's not bad song, it's first of all very long song and its repeating isn't so boring. This song in its entirety could be the reason to give better rating. But the problem (or good thing? it depends on your point of view) is what comes next.

The same thing, only divided into five songs. Well, that's this album in a nutshell. Of course there is more waiting for you to discover, if you're interested in this old gem.

4(-), not classic Prog album (rather Classical, or Rock-ssical), but I'm certain that it can please and it has its merits. Very weak 4 minus though.
