5 stars I need to disagree with JOHN B. Antiques is a brilliant album. It's like fine gourmet food - the delicate seasonings that Ant uses in just the right proportions, are just as important as the ones he doesn't use! I have spent years listening to the intricasies of this album - the best parts being the ones you have to strain to hear. His deft touch draws you in to the musical painting. Only a mind as subtle and as searing as Ant's could have pulled this off. The interplay between him and Berro-Garcia is a marvel to behold. For my money, the best songs on the album are the first two and the last two, perfect bookends. The second to last song (Sand Dunes), is a soulful work of genius. The last minute of this song is perfect - period! Every fan of Prog Rock should get this album. So too should every accalimed "guitar god", e.g. Clapton, Beck, Satriani, et al. Upon listening to this album they will not ask themselves "How did he do that" (because they can too, better in some cases), but rather, "How did he think of that!!" JOHN B. and everyone else out there, give this album at least another 100 listens - you'll see what I'm talking about.
