4.0 out of 5 stars Stardust indeed., 5 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Stardust We Are (Audio CD)
It's only quite recently I've started listening to these guys. It's a shame they weren't around in the 70's; they'd have been every bit as big as Yes or Genesis.

This album, in particular, is huge in scope and, at times, quite a difficult one to get into. But the rewards are there for those of us who have attention spans beyond three minutes.

I kept being reminded of some of the great symphonists, Mahler, Bruckner etc., who take a simple musical idea and build a hugely complex, ambitious and beautiful musical structure around it.

I'd have no qualms about recommending this album to any Prog fan, but when I hear an album like this, I wish some of the self styled musical commentators, who seem to enjoy deriding Prog simply because it requires you to pay attention, could learn to appreciate that there's more to music than the three-minute pop song.

I like a bit of light music as much as the next guy, but sometimes you just need something to get your teeth into...
