5 stars Talk about a change of sound, is it the same band that released galactic zoo dossier and its follow up just the previous year?? i guess it is!! Out goes the warm sound of the band previous records and in comes something completely different. A prog album with a drum machine? oh no...it feels the other way around but this experiment is actually turned out to be quite successful. I love this album, this is new music ( back then ) with a new approach. The drum machine does not try to sound like real drums, it tries to sound like a drum machine and that's the beauty. Along with that drum machine you have a vast array of analog keys and synths which are the main attraction here, guitar is also added and it amazes me how everything sounds so right. The music is very spacey and progressive, the material is well written and sound inovative, i'm not an expert on progressive electronic but this seams like a one of a kind album to me.

Arthur brown's vocals sound great and he deliver it in his crazy and emotional way, sometimes those vocals are synthesised as well giving the music an even stranger sound. You actually have to listen to this to know it exists. The music ranges from heavy sound with hypnotizing beat, raw distorted guitars and a full key attack, to more relaxed atmosphere, everything is so crystal clear too. Victor Peraino had done a wonderful work, his keys does not sound the same, it's a mix of sounds we never heard before, that's for sure. The album sounds dark and cold inspite all the analog instruments used.

Although the songs are not the same quality and it's not a prog masterpiece, i will give this 5 stars because it's different, exciting, new and that's what i'm looking for. The bonus tracks are different versions of the songs and features 'spirit of joy' with real drums, although it's a nice version it only indicates of how great was that experiment including the drum machine in the album.
