4 stars I've read a mixture of pros and cons reviews for this album, and, without repeating anything, I'll add this: There are moments on this album that are absolutely brilliant! Awesome displays of compositional/performance prowess. If strung together, they'd make a classic montage that everyone would rave about. As an overview, I consider this album essential prog. It takes a few listens, but I consider an overall gem. There was a narcissistic, self-indulgent element to Eddie, from my perspective, that I suspect has since waned, so the power of his youthful passion/obsession is fascinating. Why he has created so little (to my knowledge) is sad, to me. I so admire his keyboard/violin playing. His explosive solos and textures on this album (as well as UK) are breathtaking. Synopsis: there are diamonds-in-felt on Green that send chills down the spine.
