Well well well, isn't this a nice display of over indulgence. This is an album that grabs you, enthrals you, then shortly leaves you checking your proverbial watch and edging closer to the proverbial door before the proverbial crowd disperses and it takes you 20 minutes to get out of the proverbial parking lot.

To any prog rock fans out there: a must listen. I haven't heard an album so well conceived in a long, long time.
Learn to adapt to the change, or get washed away like tears in the rain.

I never listened to any of the founding fathers of the prog genre like King Crimson, Yes and Genesis. After hearing this I might give them a try!

This is an awesome album! I am a huge prog nerd, and this is an outstanding call back to the glory years of Progressive Rock. Amazing stuff.
...And so death to the falsity of thy former rulers. Thy kingdom of "heaven" burns in a field of fire, and Dentura is the one true God thou must yield thy hearts and souls to in absolute submission. It is his ultimate decree and will unto thee..
