4 stars Well this is an excellent album. Tarkus is of course the main feast here. This side of the album is excellent and is one of their greatest works. Tarkus shows the development as a group they will later display in "Brain Salad Surgery", Karn Evil 9 the example of greatness here. Back to Tarkus this album would have been another 5 if it weren't for the screw ups on side 2. Bitche's Crystal, The Only Way and Infinate Space are good songs, but the others leave you wanting. These flaws make this album 4 stars instead of 5. Jeremy Bender and Are you ready Eddy made my ears bleed. My ears bled and that made me very sad. 5 start albums do not bring sadness. However the moments of joy far outweigh the sad parts and thus it is 4 stars, just skip those 2 tracks.
