5 stars Received a copy on Saturday March 2 (pre-ordered). Amazing amazing album. This year is one of the great year of prog. SW and Riverside did excellent jobs with their new releases early 2013. However, IMHO this one will be a leading contender for the best release of the year. The English Electric Saga is now concluded beautifully.

I always have a soft spot for a majestic/grandeur opener. From the first track...and I am sold. Let me say this, the "East Coast Racer" is one of a very few track that when I first listened, I literally smile, alone, like a wackjob. Other tracks are equally impressive. I especially love the third "Work Out", the excellent sixth "The Permanent Way" and the great closer seventh "Curator of the Butterfly." Ahh... throughout Part 2, many musical theme from Part 1 has been employed seamlessly. Beautifully played, written, mixed and produced. Quality-wise, it is near perfect. I only wish they release this in a higher definition too so that I could have some more multiple eargasms :D

On a side story, my first try I let it ran for 3 spins, non-stop. My girlfriend, who usually enjoy mainstream musics, saw that I was lost for hours then came join me in the living room (where the stereo is). With me she listened to the whole album quietly and ask me to rip her a digital copy, as she specifically demanded, IN LOSSLESS FORMAT. Epic...period.
