5 stars This is one of my favorite albums of all time. I first heard it when I was given it for my fifth birthday, as a child I was in awe of space, the planets, aliens and sience, (as any kid is). This album perfectly captured my imagination with it's atmospheric melodies and eerie effects, (I was actually affraid of the aliens' cry, and 'Forever Autumn', (I used to HATE Timothy Learing!)). The two most famous tracks are 'Eve of war', and 'Forever Autumn', but there are many other stunners on this album. 'The Red Weed' sends chills down your spine and 'Thunder Child' is really heroic. Though it is true that musically, the second half of the album is weaker. It's not only the music though that makes this so great, but the atmosphere, and the story. Perhaps the best story in any concept album?
