2 stars Turgid tales of topographic boredom....this record cost all of my disposable income for a month, back in the days when records were expensive and treasured luxury's. So I can tell you I was not impressed by the seemingly endless doodlings that greeted my ear. Rick Wakeman aptly spent most of the recoding session pissed and preferred to spend his time with Black Sabbath rather than put up with the pretentious duo of Howe and Anderson who dictated this record between them. If this had been more of a group record it might have been good instead we are presented with four sides of music that are exactly four tacks. All of these tunes sound similar. Of course during this long record there are moments that work...but who cares. Roll on relayer.
