The Lost Chord
5 stars 10/10 Masterpiece

Ok now we have hit the real cheese. Gong is at their peak here and with YOU. The band has Pieere Moerlen on drums, Hillage on Guitar, Blake on keys, Howlitt pounding amazing bass riffs, Didiere shredding the sax as always, and Gilli Smyth in fairly limited doses = perfection. (it's not that I don't like Gilli, I love the space whispers I think they work great, but I cannot stand her singing lead sometimes, it just does not fit with Gong as it should!)...Just about every track on here is perfected awesomeness, or enjoyable at least, even Prostitute Poem which you can assume right off the bat is a Gilli Smyth feast.

Angel's Egg comes with so much greatness that it even gives you chills at how awesome some musicianship can be. Daevid is crazy as always and writes some magnificant lyrics for Gong, the music backing all of this, as always but even BETTER, is just incredible. You have to buy this album if you enjoy anything Gong, it could be their best, it is a very close call between this and YOU...greatness, enjoy!

The Lost Chord | 5/5 |
