3 stars Hard to hit this one for me. This is very well listed in the Psychedelic category, because what I really listen here is a rather immature band. And for the people involved here, some would hope to listen another pure Canterbury work, but that's not the case. Aside from "Metampsychosis" (which I cannot tell if is a strange improvisation or a great execution of a complex song) all the songs in here sound a little disastrous to me. Still this is a nice psych album, it is just that we expect too much after listening to the future works of these monsters. I give a low 3 stars, gotta admit it is great to listen to these guys so early in their careers. Hillage would result to be an awesome guitarist, a genius composer and a beautiful vocalist, and Stewart is for me the greatest Canterbury keyboardist, also one hell of a composer. As we know, Stewart, Campbell and Brooks went on to form Egg, Stewart and Hillage were involved in the excellent Space Shanty. Stewart was also obviosuly involved in Hatfield, National Health and Bruford's solo works, while our beloved Stevie also went on to Gong and has an awesome solo career (note that Stewart also appears in "Fish Rising"!), Cheers for all that!
