This is one of my most favourite ever albums. I saw the band live on my birthday in 1974 at Scarborough Penthouse when they toured the album. Unlike most music critcs/journos I prefer this album to their more poistively received second album, "Psi-Fi".
The album has lots of high spots but for me it really kicks off from B4, "Communication Skyways" and races all the way through to the end, building all the while with great melodies, and culminating in the joyful "Dance of the Eloi".
Simply brilliant!
