Incorporating elements of jazz, classical, and symphonic music and featuring an iconic lush, fully orchestrated sound, the album stunned critics and delighted audiences, reaching 5th place on the UK albums chart. Named by Classic Rock magazine as one of "50 Albums That Built Prog Rock,” and referred to by Pete Townsend of The Who as “an uncanny masterpiece" the album is widely regarded as one of the most important in the history of the genre.
