  • The best album ever.
  • only thing of life
  • One of my top 5 albums. Masterpiece!
  • The perfected version of Spirit Of Eden.
  • Just brilliant.

If there are any albums which inhabit a similar habitat as this and it's precursor, I'd say Van Morrison's Astral Weeks, Bitches Brew by Miles davis and Scott Walker's Scott trilogy.
  • Very good album . Masterpiece
