From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars It is hard to imagine this album ever being displaced from its eyrie at the pinnacle of Prog Archives esteem. Really impressive and, for this site, clearly THE definitive progressive rock album. It is a very rich and ornate artwork, delivered with great power and conviction. 'Close To The Edge' comprises just three long tracks, all very melodic. And here lies its weakness for myself - musical appreciation is very personal and inexplicable, and two of the three melodies I do not find as inspiring as I am supposed to. A pity, really, because it calls into question my credentials as a prog rock fan.

Verdict: obviously a good album, and this medium personal rating is my own problem.
