4 stars Maybe i disagree with most reviewers , by rating this wonderful work below 4 stars , still , i respect their opinion in this regard . But to be accurate with mine , i can't see any difference between both releases Fragile & Close to the Edge , as far as Concept , Performance , music , ritchness , a complete image of excellent prog music , for me these twins deserves the same ratings . There's no doubt that concepts are always subject to change in different works , but for me both releases got the same credit back in the 70's . and still up till now . Heart of the sunlight , Mood for the day ( the acoustic section of the album ) , Roundabout , deserves good attention from you . Progressive at high levels , There was no room at all in this concept for heart feeling , it's a complete insane work , addressing to your mind by flowing invented ideas cannot be seen easily at the beginning , a real complexed work that needs a careful look by all interrested proggers , it also remind me of some King Crimson's works , and these works take more effort to enjoy . No doubt that the middle tracks are not fitting in general with the whole idea of the concept as far as a short passages to the main stream . Still 4.5 stars are the least we can give to the excellent work ,for lyrics , performance , production , cover concept , and as a start to more essential works to the world of progressive . but still more than essential ... Tracks Toni .
