Additional info
Recorded in San Diego from '89 through '90. With funds from local gigs & merchandise sales, friend & manager Richie Rich, as well as a front from German indie lable (and rip-off artist) Rising Sun Records. This debut was well received by the music lovers in Europe, but remains an extremely underground item in the U.S. Blending all their influences into one massive sound, PW created a very unique style, once referred to as "Progressive Hippie Metal." This CD also made "Album of the Month" in many Euro-mags, including Rock Hard and Metal Hammer, one fanatic went as far as to name it "Album of the Decade."

Rating: 10 Absolute masterpiece - essence of all the qualities of prog metal. Incredible ideas, Buddy Lackey's work is just ... awesome !
I think this record pales in comparison to "Images And Words" only through the quality of sound ...

Rating: 9 Maybe its just the mood that i'm in but many times I felt like their songs were upwards of 10 minutes only to find out they're about half. Regardless I don't think there's a single bad song on this album. Cover is great too.
