5 stars Is very hard to me understand why this lost pearl of the progressive scenery of the seventies, presents so few reviews (only 11). I prefer to believe, that it is due to the ignorance on the part of the collaborators' of the PA community, that for some indifference type! However, I also verified (with satisfaction) that the last 4 posted reviews, have given the deserved value to this albun.(5 stars) Speaking about the disk , this first work of the band ETHO'S, presents a sound a little more symphonic in relation to the albun "Open Up" (I compare the 1░ in relašÔo to the 2░, because I already wrote a review on the same). Such fact maybe is dueto the presence of one more keyboard player that through the use in separate from the melotron brings as in the track "Everyman" (simulating a flute) a bucolic air, and in Track "Atlanteans" (where it simulates a suit of violins, cellos and other bowed instruments the most symphonic characteristic). However that is not dazzling in any way the mixture of symphonic prog/jazzprog/hard prog and space prog (that is the signature of this fantastic band), inside of this same track. That it is one of the prominences of the albun. The Track 5 presents an air a little heavier, with a rhythm dragged in some moments and permeated by instrumental deliriums. However, so that you can have the exact notion of what is this fantastic disk , goes direct to the Track 7 "The Dimension Man" and then you will understand clearly (I hope ...) because my quotation is 5 stars!!!!!
