3 stars There is so much about this album that warms my heart and lifts my spirit and then there's not. The cover fills me with so much progg-joy I want to skip and jump and the title... Aaaah, the title. Warrior on the edge of time. Brilliant. If it's just those things to review I'll give it five stars. Easy. But no, there is also the musical content.

First of all I can't help but feeling that the record is dated, even back in 1975. When I thinkof 1975 I do not think of this kind of sound. It belongs back in 1971, or something. And maybe, just maybe the band felt i too, completely changing their sound on the next album, Astounding sounds. That aside, there are quite a few things to like. The opener, Golden void, Magnu and The demented man for instance. I do like the album as a whole but I only like it. It does not make me feel like I want to lean back and go for a ride. it's more of an album I listen to in the background. Warrior on the edge of time i simply, I guess, a part of the 70's albums I do not fully grip, still it's more enjoyable than many other from the decade.

In short it's an album well crafted but the overall result does not thrill me. It pleases me, somewhat.
