4 stars No, the RELAYER is not essential,but yet it's a masterpiece. The most refreshing part is propably the very special sound of Patrick MORAZ. You can hear the jazzy influences he gives to the album mostly on the "Sound Chaser". When I first listened to this album I thought:"Damn, did I really spend 10$ on this *%^", but after three or four more listenings I would say:"Wippy, I would spend 50 bucks on this fine music". Yes I know there are some bad parts on this, for excample the onholding violence on "Gares of Derillium", sonmetimes I asked myself "Where are those nice peace seeking musicians that I used to know!?", but the brilliant work of Squire and Moraz really cover the bad points. By the way, the keybord work on "Gates of Derillium" 11'45" is a breakthrough, everytime I listen to a solo of Jordan RUDDES i can hear the influence of Patrick MORAZ. Yeah for a real progfan this is a "must have".
