And what a powerful triumvirate it is, eh. By the way, don't the first four (maybe 5) tracks of BSM have that same conceptual and musical seamlessness? As I recall, there's very little breathing space between Blue Sky and Warburton - tonasophically speaking - and then straight into Bedlam Bridge and Forgotten years (also poetically paired, IMO), then that spacey seguay trek to the Mountains of Burma - What a piece of work; a veritable five-iron punch! :) 

BTW, I'd have to rank BSM as one of the greatest concept albums of all time.... up there with Pink Floyd's Animals in my mind.
