THIS HAS TO BE BY FAR THE BEST PROG ROCK ALBUM EVER !!!,
This review is from: Tales from Topographic Oceans (Audio CD)
I give this album 10 star's if I could. It took me about 4 times to really understand this album and fully appreciate it musically. It's a journey that you have to go along with and listen to it all the way through, with peace and quite and no interruption. This was slatted at the time a little as people felt it was over the top, but given the test of time it has ripened with age and now people can understand what the band were trying to do.I really do prefer this more musically than Pink Floyd Dark side of the moon. This album has much more complex musical peaces and really draws the listener in. Rick Wakemans keyboard playing is out of this world he is really ahead of his time. You will here the melletron as you never herd it before well only King crimson that is.....
At times it will bring you to tears some of the peaces are quite moving.
I think Pink Floyd Dark side of the Moon is great and a testament to time but well over rated!!! .......this is a must listen as well as there next Album Reallayer 1974 it all nicely comes together this is there finest effort .
Buy it buy it Buy it........
