Staff review by
Doc Godin

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.

Rating: 9 To any prog rock fans out there: a must listen. I haven't heard an album so well conceived in a long, long time.

Rating: 9 Like a time capsule.

Rating: 7 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!

Rating: 8 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.
