This one is just too tough, the whole album is so incredible.    The sound they captured here is genius.

Great album. All great songs, but the title track epic, "Cygnus X-1, Book II"  is their best work ever IMO.

Title track. Again, more individuality but with a twist. Aside from that it is awesome musically on all accounts. I cannot think of anything wrong with this album, except for the tape stock they used for recording it. Noisey.

I choose La Villa simply for one piece of work in Alexs song, I believe it is A Lerxst In Wonderland. The softness, yearning of it. That piece of music is just one of the best ever wrote, it speaks to me. Everytime I hear it I get chills! That part just does something to me that no other piece of music has ever done.

Tough one for me... I live all of these, but Hemispheres has to be the most diverse and complex... LOVE IT!

Yes, I love Circumstances, as well. But, gosh, it sure has some stiff competition on this album.

I don't care how many times I've heard it, I could listen to La Villa over and over and over. It's just one of my all time faves by any band.

THat is a great version, I do miss Al's intro that he is skipping now, though. Any chance to see him shred is one to relish.
