5 stars This is THE record that has been playing in my stereos for years. I haven't found anything like it all this time. So, I could say that this is THE album of my all-time favorites. And by the way, Images & Words get's the second place, absolutely.

Now, let me describe the album shortly, because there isn't much to say about it. Well of course I could praise this album for the whole day but I won't, because words aren't enough to describe how magnificent the music is on this album.

The album starts and kicks off with an incredible kickass-song called 6:00. The atmosphere goes to top right from the beginning and the feeling stays and rises to maximum with the brilliant instrumental Erotomania. The feeling is still undiscribable in the song Voices. By the end of the song you can calm your self down of the ecstasy that you just got from the music. The Silent Man is a calm and beautiful song which prepares you for another heavenly section. By the time The Mirror is playing, you're in heaven again. That heavenly feeling doesn't stop until the album ends with a sad song, Space-Dye Vest.

So, the album is just perfect, and better than perfect, right from the beginning to the end. I don't need any alcohol or drugs to get high; I just listen to this album and I'm higher than I could ever be. After all these years, I still can't find the right words to describe this record. This is THE album of my favorites, and it will always be...
