3 stars Another one of these concept albums extremely well produced (from Parsons , the opposite would be unthinkable) and done by great musicians but as always with APP you can talk about songs as they are just that - songs. With other Prog Archives artists, I usually use the word piece or track because they don't fit the song format. This is important for me , I see songs as generally reducing music to a radio-friendly format as APP did just that : Radio-friendly songs in conceptual albums for a broad appeal (and he succeded) to both top 40 and album-buying publics.

All pedantics and semantics aside, many excellent songs on this album and on another site , I might have given another half star to it.
