The final moments of part one consist of the jarring riff used to bridge the acoustical introduction to the rest of the song. One of the ‘articles’ contains the lyrics of the music.

Then, I guess, it could have been one or two minutes shorter. Eventually the song ends, rather nicely actually, but I’m left with a discontent feeling. The music is so interesting and exciting and intricate, that you can quite easily listen all the way through and not get bored.

I get the same feeling of the Moonchild song from King Crimson, there’s a line, but too weak to climb up my repertoire. Let’s go over the music in great details. Retrieved 21 May Album plays well, the original sleeve is not included a plain white paper sleeve is provided.
