    This is one of those albums that I don't really "get"... And I'm not talking down on the music, I just think something about it doesn't strike me. It's not that I don't understand the music either. I'm well versed on different styles and prog and all that, and musically it's not that far out. Some segments sound great, others a bit more pedestrian, but the flow of the movements doesnt seem to work that well, particularly on side 1. The pieces don't seem to flow exceptionally well in and out of each other, and the order in which the musical movements are arranged doesn't always seem to make much sense. To put it simply: The material is there, but the modality isn't.
    With all that criticism in mind, it's still a good album and I enjoy it. Maybe it'll click after more listens, maybe it won't. Either way it's not one to discard.

      It's just one of the best progressive rock album I own beside Pink Floyd's master piece Wish you where here. It's just a great flow music which webbed together.
