2 stars This is one of the earliest experimental rock albums, and truly was visionary piece of music. On the other side, this is one of the most self-indulgent albums I have ever heard. And, I feel that this is totally unique and original. So, why I give only two stars rating to this one? There are few reasons. First of all, this album lacks some musical beauty that i search in every piece of music. I am fan of experimental music, but it needs to have some special, light, picturesque atmosphere. The biggest part of this album is just uninteresting noise and playing with some percussion. Sysyphus, which is built of first four tracks of experimental part of album is probably vision of LSD trip, which I hate. I do not like heavy influence of psychedelic drugs on music. The Grand Vizier's Garden has beautiful flute, but it lasts too short and second part is again some senseless drumming. Pink Floyd went too far this time. This is not album that could make me enjoy. If this is suposse to be top of progressive music, than I would just avoid it. I would rather listen to some aliens music. Might be more interesting!
