5 stars Even though this album is from many, many years ago, it's still beautiful, challenging and rewarding - and still ahead of its time. My goodness, this is avante / prog / rock - personified. The melodic nature of it, is what makes the dissonance and "free rock / jazz" so palatable to this aging proggers ears.

All members are of the highest caliber, and Keith Tippet continues to challenge me with his beautiful, dynamic playing. And what can be said, that hasn't been said about Hopper and Dean - gods of their times. Gallivan, less known, yet ever bit as creative and sold - a miracle in drummers.

I wish there would have been more of this creative group's efforts recorded. Live, this must have been magic.
