Editor's note: I'm on Side B of the first record and must say that I am pretty well impressed by this! It sounds like an orchestra playing a symphony or concerto. Albeit an electronic one it still sounds cohesive and thematic though the them kind of evades me despite being spelled out on the liner notes. Not my kind of music but a worthwhile effort all the same.
