If anyone can give me an album that can match this one in terms of progressiveness (except King Crimson's), please do so. That's just amazing what's all going on on this record. Pure psychedelic Beethoven.

^ Completely agreed although I've yet to hear Concerto from the same year, Burn beyond its title-track, Come Taste tB and a half-dozen post-Blue Light (which I expect I would score from 3-9/10 when I eventually get familiar with 'em)
death thrash death/doom/prog Hail Zoldon!

Nice album. Shows the band's progression from their earlier material into more progressive song structures. The keyboard-laden interludes and solos are absolutely brilliant here especially on 'Blind' and 'Why didn't Rosemary'.

Great album. Great musicianship. Great songwriting. "Chasing Shadows" and "The Painter" are total masterpiece songs, and the standard of songs is really high on this album.
