4 stars Another album in 'epic' format. This album mirrors close to the edge, but is far less grandiose in it's music. This album is much more frantic and busy. It's almost a little too busy, especially the intro. If your in the right mood it's great though! Track one is a little 'rough' bur progresses nicely and ends beautifully. Track 2 has some awesome howe guitarwork. Track 3 is beautifull and catchy, but still progressive and very yes sounding. This album aspired to great heights, but did not quite get there. Close to the edge remains undefeated. If this album was a little more structured and less busy, I would probably give it a 5, but taking it as it is and considering the magnificense of close to the edge, I give it 4/5. sadly, wakeman is missing! I guess that bumed me out a little too.
