The Lost Chord
5 stars 10/10 Masterpiece

The final installment in the Gong Quadrilogy(It is 4 albums of Pot Head Pixie life, so yes it is a quad !!), and the last real album for this line-up and this brilliant aura, style and sound of Gong. YOU is the ultimate finish to a brilliant series of albums. This album is epic space rock genius at it's best. I love this album to death, it has some of the best moral teachings through it's lyrics, some incredible production quality and sound, and the musicianship/music is uneblieveable. Magic Mother and Master Builder combination is by far my favorite section. This album can really transport you places, it is the closest thing to a musical "drug" I have ever experienced. The ending to this album is bitter sweet, such a perfect, fitting end to this Quadrilogy. I can never get enough of Tim Blakes work on here and Pierre, they are just genius and phenominal at the choices they make for songs...

Well there you have it, the end of a segement of greatness in the land of music. Pierre will take over after this to deliver some fantastic jazz/fusion style stuff. YOU is a must have for Gong fans or interested jazz fans, or freaks, and crazy people in general ;)

Also check out "Live in the 70's" for the absolute best live versions of some of the tracks from YOU. Masterful.

"maybe you don't know what you know..."
