Almost a master piece album. This does sound like british prog unlike many of their later albums-

Tales is the masterpiece song, Blind Eye is pretty amazing while not quite as good as Wishbone Ash's same titled song and Magician's Birthday manages to sound interesting even with its -- unnessearily long? -- instrumental wankery for the whole of it. Not their best album, but one my favorites and may be a little bit underrated. Ken Hensley proved once again that he could write some ingenious songs.
