5 stars I think that this album is a true masterpiece! The title epic with the brass arrangements is haunting and wonderful, and there are also other good tracks on the album. The opener "Bird of Prey" is a good heavy rock song, and the following "The Park" is very fragile and beautiful jazzy ballad. Their hit song "Lady in Black" has good lyrics, and the sound wall of many acoustic guitars is pleasant. "High Priestess" and "Time to Live" are also nice rockers. I have listened some re-mastered CD with few bonus tracks, and there was a nice heavier song called "Simon The Bullet Freak" on it. It was really OK, but it had some parts which sounded like quite direct BEATLES quotations, and maybe it was omitted because of this originally?

I would recommend this album to all fans of artistic 70's rock and prog collectors. There are also some light jazz influences in some of the songs ("The Park", "Salisbury"), so those who are interested in easy jazz fusion might also want to check this out.
