3 stars Coming even closer to the golden era and their progresive rock trademark sound, this is the first album that is recommended to any progressive rock listener. Echoes of jazz-rock are still present, unique colourful vocals, some more exotic keyboards like harpsichord and good composiions are the selling points of this album. The title track has them all in one, in its 22 minuts.

The second track with the philosophical name has nice harmony vocals and typical melody hooks that would reappear in next albums. There is a nice dynamic instrumental section with guitar, trumpets, hoboes and percussions and even a sinister organ solo in the end that is really impressive at the verge of updating their sound.

The third track is a light and reflective number whereas the last track alternates between pop-jazz first part with vocals and wild guitar led instrumental jazz-rock trip separated by mellow guitar and piano.

A good album but much better is to come :-) 3.5 stars
