5 stars This truely stands to be called a masterpiece. It sure is between my personal top 5 albums of the 90's. As in other albums, the influences of 70's best bands are clearly shown here, i can say that Genesis' "Firth of Fifth" is to "The Doorway" as maybe "Chatauqua" is to Howe's "The Clap" or "Mood for a Day", also you'll find one part of Yes' "Roundabout" very alike as one part in "Beware of Darkness" (the wakemanish piano part), and of course the spectacular "Thoughts" is to me an Ode to Gentle Giant. High points here? all songs are, i'd say my top 3 songs here are "The Doorway", "Beware of Darkness" and "Walking on the Wind"... but damn! all songs are excellent pieces of music. Prog at its best here! go buy this one!
