Another Great "Lost" Album

"I've had this album since I bought it in the mid 80's in Turkey at a garage sale. I'd heard and seen plenty on this band but could not remember a thing about their sound. Turns out, I never even played this album when I took it home. It wasn't until the other day when I burned it to CD was I able to give it a fair listen.
This is truly another one of those great lost prog-rock gems. It is a theme album and even though I separated the individual parts into tracks, it still sounds like one continual piece, which I believe, was the intent.
The music is very guitar and keyboard oriented and there are some great jams. The guitarist tends to use the wa wa a lot, occasionally reminding me of that disco snick snick thing like in Shaft. However, that is only a minor part of this. I have no problem at all with the music and it is well done. However, I'm not really crazy about the vocals. They are not bad, and Roye is a good singer, but they sound like a mix of Jon Anderson and Roger Waters, two singers I'm not really crazy about. That is the only down side of this album.
Despite my opinion of the singing, I highly recommend this for prog-rock lovers.
