“The most loved of all Nektar’s albums. The whole album consisted of just one 40–minute long piece, which is completely flawless. The track is extremely carefully structured and well–written. There’s absolutely no unnecessary in here. With the exception of the end of “Part 1”, there is almost no instrumental parts here. But there’s no need to worry, cause the vocals are very tasteful and pleasant, and always based in great themes. This album also have the most perfected Nektar–sound. The lyrics is about a boy who speaks to a bird, and the whole story has a very optimistic and nice message. The album was also Nektar’s best selling, so it seems that the record–buying public SOMETIMES have some good taste. This album is just as important to any prog collection as Yes’s “Close to the Edge”, ELP’s “Brain Salad Surgery” and Genesis’s “Foxtrot,” Tommy Shoenbergs.
