This is amazing stuff! A wonderfully crafted album by the progressive rock giants Gentle Giant. Many of their albums are good, but they're not easy listening, their music is very complex, very challenging. It's a mixture of symphonic rock, hard rock, adding some medieval influences. This is a concept album, telling the story of three friends, starting out when they're playing together as children, "Prologue" and "School Days", and followed their very different paths through the life. One become an ordinary worker, the second an artist and the third become a very rich man. The songs illustrated this, "Working All Day", "Peel the Paint" and "Mister Class and Quality". The last song "Three Friends" is a very beautiful, like a psalm, one of their best.
A very recommended album!
