This double album contains no less than 5 epics - 3 of them beyond 20 minutes. To me, this is usually an alarm for big boredom... fortunately, this album is not of this kind. If J.S. Bach would have lived in the golden age of ArtRock (i.e. 70's), maybe his cantatas would have sounded like those epics. The album is a highly successful attempt to carry on and refine the heritage of Genesis - both musically and lyrically. The lead vocals are somewhat irritating at times, because they sometimes just don't fit into the otherwise perfect arrangements. But that's a minor problem only. All in all a big listening pleasure.
Favorite track: Three One-Eyed Gods.
