Prog Reviewer
5 stars A superb album.

It has received countless reviews, in which just about everything has already been said, so let me just point out one bad thing and one good thing.

1. Bad: Rick Wakeman's church organ was TERRIBLY recorded. Listen to any classical organ disc, or even to the sound Tomas Bodin manages to get with the Flower Kings, and you will see what I mean. The sound should be much fuller. A missed opportunity.

2. Good: Don't you just love Jon Anderson's unwavering vocals during that gentle middle section of the title track? His lyrics, of course, don't make sense - but boy has he got soul!
