5 stars Soft Machines third album "Third" is the best Soft Machine album, and the best Canterbury album as well. This album has captured the essence of the Canterbury sound 100% perfectly. The opening of this album (Facelift) is very spacey, it takes about 5mins to progress into the complex jazz/rock/psychedelic fusion, and when it does it will blow you away. Facelift is probably my favorite Soft Machine song, along with Hope For Happiness, and is completely instrumental and includes a very beautiful flute solo. This entire album shows each member of the classic line-up in tip top shape, and features amazing musical interplay between each member. The album is mostly instumental except for Moon In June which is a great tune... Overall...This is the seminal work of the Canterbury Scene, and Soft Machines masterpeice>an all out jam out.
