5 stars Nothing I will say here hasn't already been said in the prior reviews, but it's a must!

This has got to be the best progressive album ever and just couldn't stand not reviewing it! I'm a quite a fan of JETHRO TULL, MARILLION, ELP, and many others superb progressive bands. But somehow they seem to lack the spiritual appeal so abundant in this album. If you listen carefully enough to each track, it is guaranteed that you will never hear the same song every time. The tracks seem to hide a misterious and marvelous message, explorable only through one's mind. I may never find this message, but I'm surely not willing to, because the exploration brings me to a higher state of mind. It's surely difficult to mention the tracks separately, because they are like life itself: every moment is marked by nothing but your reactions to it, and that's why they may never sound the same.

All my life I have listened to music thinking it was a wonderful art, but after listening to this album, I truly realised what is 'art'.
