5 stars Captain Beyond is the ultimate in hard rock meets space rock meets obscurity!

Everything about the band and album has been covered in previous reviews, so I'll go personal. I don't usually ever go for the heavy guitar stuff, I'm way more into pastoral prog and electronics. I passed the heavy metal phase at 14. This isn't exactly heavy metal, but its heavier than my norm. I wish I could go back in time and replace this with all the ACDC and Ozzy dreck that was blasted in high school. If I have a few brews nowadays, this is always in the player.

Captain Beyond is for me like surfing the perfect wave. The first two tracks are the get off, the second half of the third track myopic void is where the wave starts to crest. I can't feel nothing bookends the end of the ride, and you wish to replicate the experience immediately.
