Right from its beginning Brain Salad Surgery transports you to another, alien world and does not let you come back back until after the end of the album. It is as if this album came from another, alternate universe that is kind of like ours, yet also different. This album is not only an absolute masterpiece of progressive Rock, but an album with a unique feel, sound, and atmosphere - there is nothing else like this!

The group had already released several strong albums including the excellent Trilogy, but Brain Salad Surgery is the pinnacle of their career and stands above everything else they did before or since. The massive three part epic Karn Evil 9 is simply out of this world deserves every progressive Rock fan's attention.

An absolutely essential album!
