Prog Reviewer
5 stars One of 5-10 albums in which I would not change a single thing.

Everything on this album works and works well, and it flows together beautifully. There's plenty of rock (title track, Khatru), contemplation (title track), sheer majesty (And You and I), and even some folksy bits (And You and I). Couple that with fantastic instrumentation and production (the vocal harmonies sound great without sounding overproduced), and you have one whopper of an album. Truly a unique moment, both in the band's history and for progressive rock in general.

Probably the greatest progressive rock album of all time in my book.
