5 stars Definitely a masterpiece of progressive rock. The Banks opera prima is just what I would expect from him: An album full of keyboards behind a conceptual story and with much feeling and a great atmosphere. A courious feeling is full of progressive rock: many instrumentals, great piano riffs, great melodies, etc. The album opens with the short but outstanding keyboard piece (almost an orchestra emulation) From the undertow and then continues with great music. On the original side one, the highlight was the suite The lie/After the lie. The first part with a heavy piano work and the second ending with a superb keyboard solo in the fade out. The original side two has the best of the album. It starts with the fantastic You, a piece wich begins with a quiet song and then get into an outstanding instrumental full of keyboards in an orchestral way and with a great melody. After that continues with the heaviest track of the album Somebody else's dream, a good one too. Waters of Lethe is maybe one of the best pieces that Banks had composed in his solo career. Just a piece of art of symphonic music. A beautiful acoustic but orchestral instrumental, full of soul and feeling, wich representes the critical moment of the story that tells the album. For a while is maybe the most known of the album, catchy and nostalgic. The end comes with another short and obscure track with an orchestral interlude.
