4 stars Although this was not PT's first album it was the first I bought by this band. It made me want more because I really liked it but if I look back now at their impressive career I have to conclude that this first acquaintance was the ultimate highlight. This album was at that time the leader of psychedelic/space rock. Everything you may expect from this department in progressive rock is to be found on this album: long-drawn-out compositions with "spacy" impressions, great build up especially of the two title track songs. They are amazing compositions to me, great classics. To a lesser degree this is the case with Moonloop but there's not as much happening in this song as in the two other epics. Dislocated day is of a different calibre, a short song, nice, quite catchy even but more of a normal, regular song. The Moon touches your shoulder and Prepare yourself are to me the lesser songs of the album.

This album is great but not an absolute classic worthy of 5 stars, so it has to be 4.
