5.0 out of 5 stars "Sounds Beyond Ears", indeed! A masterpiece!!, January 6, 2005
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Initiation (Audio CD)
I bought this LP in 1975 after hearing "Real Man" on the radio, and proceeded to be blown away (as was the case with all of Todd's albums during that time). It was my professed "favorite album" for many years to come. Side One was the expected collection of superbly crafted tunes (especially "Fair Warning", perhaps my favorite Todd tune). But what intrigued and hooked me even more from the start was Side Two's "A Treatise On Cosmic Fire", which was, and remains, a jawdroppingly masterful work of musical expression. Perhaps by today's standards the electronic gadgetry used sounds a bit cheesy, but back then it was an aural experience unlike any other. And that music! Absolutely beautiful. And rocking. And funny. And mesmerizing. But most of all, just plain ingenious. As another reviewer suggested, this album should be in the "progressive music" hall of fame, along with Todd's first Utopia album of 1974.
