5 stars For anyone not to give this five stars is egregious. One of the landmark albums so far this centruy. And some people have the audacity to say it is not progressive. This is what it is all about if you want crystal clear procuction, brilliant musicians, hard hitting as well as slow and beautiful in one package. All four songs are different but all are absolutely top shelf. I often see Uphill From Here quoted as being the weakest on the album, but you won't hear Roine Stolt sound so good and shred at the same time on anything else except maybe Stranger in Your Soul. Jonas Reingold's bass on The Canterbury Sequence makes you feel like you are floating on a cloud. The chorus in In Darkest Dreams will stick in your head for days. Andy Tillison is one of the most underrated prog artists alive today. Disregard any and all low reviews. If you don't have this, get it or miss out. Brilliant.
