Oh my... what a disappoinment. :/ After being truly impressed with the 14-minute piece 1969 from the new album (and the whole album in general), I was really looking forward to listening to this one and it doesn't do much for me at all. I feel like 1969 manages to excite me for the entire 14 minutes while this one only has a few great moments. Meh, maybe it will grow on me.
yaaayyy wonderful album..... esp this track. yes, it's 'everything and the kitchen sink' but that's it's charm and it never stays too long on one theme to be dull but long enough to explore it nicely. The return of the main theme in different forms is very well done.
Great song, Great album. The pieces are everything that progressive rock should be. Nice musical exploration with uncommon (for prog) and interesting themes. Definitely one of my favorite prog albums in the last few years.
