5 stars This is my all time favourite album. It may not be perfectly structured like CttE, but nevertheless, it's been a pleasure listening to it for more than 30 years. There might be 2 minutes of 'The Ancient' that I could live without, otherwise it's just beautiful. And it's 'lack' of structure allows it never to become boring, you're never quite sure whar happens next, even after many listens. The four tracks are all marvelous, but my favourite for the moment, despite Wakeman's 'plodding', is The Remembering. Five shining stars.
