Wow this is great! At some point it reminds me of that greek group names Akpitae (or Akritas) or even Osanna's Palepoli. Other songs, like Butty's Blues, are more jazzy, and really those guys who how to do their stuff! "The Valentyne Suite" is the main piece on this album, and really it is huge! It can't be shy of any Genesis or any other "mainstream" prog group... It's really powerful, imaginative; always with that jazzy touch, or should I say MAGIC TOUCH? I just can't believe this song simply exist. It's just too good! Just imagine the best jazz group you can find and put make them play with ELP and you get the idea. Valentyne Suite is huge!

This is an essential addition for any real prog fan!
