3 stars One of their best epics, a mood shifting and unique progressive journey and their first recording featuring Derek Shernian on keyboards replcing Kevin Moore after his depature. This one was written back in 1989, right after the release of their debut album and was planned to be included on "Images & Words", but it didn't (because of the lenght?), The song clocks in at 23 minutes but it's never dull and perhaps their finest moment after their brilliant "Images & Words" and "Awake" releases. However, the rest of this EP is cover songs. Not bad cover songs, in fact, these are very good, though I find'em a bit boring overall and doesn't really suit following the masterful title track, therefore the three star rating. But I strongly recommend it nevertheless, but mostly because of the title track. The cover songs are mostly fan material in my book.
