4 stars A psychedelic bomb!

This one is stunning and unique work, using all studio tricks to enhance the overall psychedelic experience, and with good success. This album actually divided in to two great epics, which every song connects to the next one continuing that line of thought. Music is of course psychedelic progressive with a lot of humor incorporating brown's long range of excellent vocals, trippy instrumentals, weird interludes and all of the studio manipulating you can have, from shifting pitch to shifting speed, or just messing with the tape to make you think is my cd scratched or what?? This is crazy stuff even for today.

There is a lot to love here because the diversity is enormous from the groovy rocky opener to crazy interludes to airy songs with good synths amazing guitar and on top of that the vocals of the one and only arthur brown, as wacky as he may be sometimes, he can really sing some emotional stuff when needed, just check out 'sunrise' to get the picture. I am truly surprised at how is everything so progressive too, the development is very good always interesting, keeping you alert every second. Vintage sound lovers will find so much here, the arsenal of sounds is vast coming from the various keyboards included, making this release so colorful.

Although a very psychedelic album it still wins the test of time, sounding refreshing and exciting. I had such a good surprise finding out that this group working under the singers' name were actually very capable musicians not only by playing but also writing everything. This psychedelic style is not space rock and there are no long songs with long solos and trippy kind of vocals, it is more progressive with psychedelic aura around. Very good stuff , don't miss it.
