4 stars The classic of all classic Prog Rock albums, if you love Progressive Rock and have not bought this album.. Leave your PC NOW!!! and go out and get it (or just click IE.. and do it the easier way)

Tarkus is my favourite side long track of anything! The change of music styles are formidable.. Fantastic stuff!.. Different movements, of varying styles make this a real prog classic!

Jeremy Bender.... Nice little track, about a guy who is a little bit unstable from the sound of the lyrics!

Bitches Crystal.. one of my fave tracks on the album.. very heavy!!! needs to be played LOUD!

The Only Way.. Ah yes, half hymn half jazz.. the first stage towards Jerusalem perhaps?? I like this one..

Last two tracks sound as if they have been thrown together at the last moment

Time And A Place.. Ermm.. Not a favourite, still classic prog though..

Are You Ready Eddy?... Rock N Roll!!! All about a certain producer/engineer called Eddy Offord! Bit of a laugh this one.. Track to get your rocks off..

Frippertron | 4/5 |
