3 stars I think one's appreciation, or lack of, for this album will vary depending on the direction from which you approach it. As a big fan of early 70's Miles, Soft Machine, Henry Cow, Can, Amon Duul II, Guru Guru, British Jazz-Rock as well as all periods of KC, I think it has a lot of enjoyable music on it. If you listen to a lot of bootleg-quality recordings (for me, that's usually Can or Miles) your ears sort of learn to adapt and "hear-through" the murkiness and you hardly notice it. The variety of playing and styles presented here are way cool in my view. Not a must-own, by any means, but still a quite decent listen. (But I like "Thrakattak", too, so be cautious with my advice...)
