5 stars I first heard this album when I was 13 and I loved it straight away, and I still love it now (at 40!). The music & narrative just blend so perfectly. It is 'Prog' for me in the way that it takes a story (obviously in this case a well known novel) and twists it with some fine instrumentation & sounds that never fail to keep you hooked. Many people seem to feel the 2nd disc loses the quality, but I don't feel this at all. The Red Weed maybe slows down the pace but adds to the tension within the story. The only bit I would ditch is the 'Epilogue Part2' which seems a bit surplus to requirements, however, this is just a minor whinge and doesn't stop me giving this a Masterpiece rating. Enjoy....
