5 stars A patented and universally recognized masterpiece, no doubt about it. Even people who hate progressive rock (including some fans of FM pop hits!) usually admit that 'there's something there' when they listen to Ocean. But the second half of the album seems to be less inspired than the first one. I don't want to say that Decay Of Logos and Atlantis' Agony are squeezed out, but surely the highest tension and melodic power of Poseidon's Creation and Incarnation Of Logos significantly decrease in the following two tracks. I'm pleased to mention that the band did not use the sound of sea waves in the arrangements. Even oceanic waves closing down upon drowning Atlantis are shown by purely musical means, with no vulgar sound effects.
