3 stars I like this album. It's a nice, spare entry to the Ash Ra discography. However, I find this album inferior to the work immediately preceding and following its 1975 recording date. The soundscapes aren't as engaging here as the are on New Age of Earth or Inventions for Electric Guitar and the Ashra melodies and band interaction hold more appeal the the floating Le Berceau de Cristal. A pleasant, top-heavy album that rarely gets play on my turntable due to the existence of much better Ash Ra and ambient/electronic releases out there.

I would like to see how the music interacts with the movie someday. That could bump the score for me, however it's unlikely. If Goettsching and crew thought this was so great, why did it sit unreleased until the early 1990's?

Nice cover art, but the words and font don't go with the picture. For some it's quibbling, for me it's a turnoff.
