Excellent album. Each track is different, with proggy and heavy element, difficult rime signatures and changes etc and yet with catchy tunes to boot. I think the production on the vinyl LP could perhaps be a bit more hi-fi (hence the 4* instead of 5) but nevertheless this is a brilliant album - highly recommended. On a separate note, the free MP3 rip is a bit of a curate's egg - good in parts. On the one hand it's of variable resolution but peaking at 320kb/s, which is good. On the other hand it's been transferred at too high a volume level, resulting in clipping during some of the loud peaks. This leads to masses of distortion (in digital audio even exceeding 0dBf by a tiny smidge causes huge distortion), so those fragments sound harsh, splashy and unpleeasant. Not having heard the CD, I suppose it's possible that the problem is with the digital original and not the MP3 transfer.
