This album was my first intro to prog rock in the 70's. It was weird but exhilarating. There is a classical music style to the compositions, quiet moments with the percussion, beautifully played ballads and sonic blastings from great musicians who played with' and against each other. Astonishing. To me this became the best album of the 70's and the biggest influence on my musical tastes. The band's live versions from this lineup of the group are even better. If you simply want to start with the power of the live band, I would recommend USA (recently repackaged as live at Asbury Park)
