5 stars Yes push the enveloppe to the max with this one. The music on this album has Patrick Moraz all over it, the sound ,the feel, the emotion without him there is no Relayer. Rick could not and would play keyboards this way and Vangelis was unavalaible. the lyrics are pure Jon Anderson he never reached that level again. Steve's playing is influence by and is the perfect harmony with Patrick. Alan's drumming is better then on Tales and by a long shot and Chris well is Chris.

This album along with Works form ELP and Rick's Journey signal the end of the golden age of prog and the push toward a more simple way to make music call the punk movement .

For being so bombastic and grandiose this album truly deserve to be call a masterpiece.
