Mike from Suffolk has this album described perfectly... I can't add much more, except to say that this was possibly the last of the great prog-rock albums before the 'punk' revolution. Maybe Todd should have disbanded the band after this majestic effort as they never got near this standard again. Two tracks (Jealousy and Eternal Love) maybe are not quite to the same standard as the others, but that is maybe nit-picking, the rest more than makes up for it. Put this alongside 'Todd Rundgrens Utopia' and 'Bat Out Of Hell' and you have the most creative period of Todd's 'heavy' career (albeit 'Bat' was not strictly a Todd/Utopia album). You don't need much more.
