5 stars i guess if ever i had a 'guilty pleasure' i have no idea what that means but meh, but it would have to be this, mix of instrumental prog, pop, disco, spoken word passages and pure delight is every bit epic as it sounds, based on the novel of the same name by H.G Wells about what our planet would be like during an alien invasion it has stood the test of time and has become a classic for both prog fans and just music lovers alike, and with a star studded cast featuring Justin Heyward, Phil Lynott, David Essex and Richard Burton you just cant go wrong, the songs themselves are devine, highlights include the beautifuly led balled FOREVER AUTUMN, the Lynott led THE SPIRIT OF MAN and David Esses's brilliant BRAVE NEW WORLD not to mention the musicians are spactacular and just an all round great album;

The Eve of the War - 10/10 Horsell Common and the Heat Ray - 9/10 The Artilleryman and the Fighting Machine - 9/10 Forever Autumn - 10/10 Thunder Child - 10/10 The Red Weed - 9/10 The Spirit of Man- 10/10 The Red Weed (part 2) - 8/10 Brave New World - 10/10 Dead London - 9/10 Epilogue (Part 1) - 8/10 Epilogue (Part 2) (NASA) - 8/10

CONCLUSION; an all out spactacular that you must hear to believe
