3 stars Despite its age (which shows), this is an exceptional piece of spacey atmosphere and experimental playing with strong performances. The tone is dark throughout, the majority of the songs containing heavy use of mellotron/organ soundscapes with some very exciting guitar work scattered here and there to spice things up. Albrighton's axe-work is a sort of heavy blues which cooks with surprising intensity, especially when juxtaposed to the otherwise long, slow sustains of the keyboards-- the highlight of the album for me, along with his tinkling sound effects. However, the vocals, recording quality, and sometimes cheesy organ sound date the album quite a bit, and unless the listener is a fan of the classic, early psychedelic period, liable to detract from the experience.

Songwriting: 3 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 2 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
