His crowning musical achievement? As a solo artist, absolutely! Its climaxes and crescendos are so powerful. And more importantly, this is the last album before Roger's voice went hoarse. Other fantastic facets of this album are the female backup singers and having Eric Clapton on guitar. All that said, it may not be the most accessible album to the casual listener and it's best if listened to as a whole. I recommend that you give it some time and a few listens, and if you're old enough ;), it sounds even better after a half dozen beers or a bottle of wine.
