5 stars 9.3/10 Incredible

Whew!! Here we have it! Gong is on fire now, and getting even hotter as the band gets tighter, better musicianship, and an overall refined finish for a superb album. The pot head pixies and the Planet Gong concept are heavily underway here and the band plans on making a trilogy out of the initial story born way back when Daevid Allen started thinking about it! I would like to say this is Gong's most accessible album, aside from any Pierre Moerlen's Gong work. Every track on here is awesome, totally jazzy, get up and move music. The album gets a whopping .7 off for my review all because of Witch's Promise. I don't like this song, and again I could do without Gilli taking lead in a is just stupid when she gets in there all sexual and innappropriate, but, ah I guess that is what comes with such a crazy band.

This was actually the first Gong album I listened to and I thought it was "Good"...but as I later became a Gnome the music on here is all the more rewarding and amazing. Tim Blake blows your mind apart with Octave Doctors, and Steve Hillage has arrived to kick some major ass (maybe not so much on this album, but hey at least he is there!).

Truly awesome band has emerged full force, sick back and take another brilliant, innovative and genius trip with Gong!

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
