5 stars The rating is not important. This is a masterpiece, but it's not perfect. When i first listened to this album i coud feel my ears and mind expanding.

-Track 1: very dark and heavy, really, more than metal. The feeling i get every time i hear this track is like a revelation of the darkness of my soul. -Track 2: excellent "song". With dark atmosphere. Wetton's timbre fits perfectly. -Track 3: rocking song with solos. Awesome sax solo and guitars. -Track 4: An avant-garde jam that doesn't have anything in particular that i like. -Track 5: The epic. It is a great epic. Unforgettable guitar melody on the intro. Depressive mood. Mellotron and strings give more emotion. The instrumental section starts mysterious and goes in crescendo, ending with that unforgattable melody of the intro.

Listen to this album, it is essential. I gave 4 stars just because of the track 4 which doesn't fit well among the other pieces.

//EDIT: Considering how important this album is for me, i have to upload my rating to 5 stars. However, i alredy declared it is a masterpiece. Now it's fair.
