3 stars Athough interesting, I would certainly recommend to start with some of the excellent Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy studio albums - because this one is a bit messy. Nothing particularly wrong with it - all the GONG ingredients are here - long trippy jams, spacey keys, sax solos, space whispers and psych vocals. But I'm missing the magic of captured moments on studio albums: this one is madness half-revealed. There's a lot to be appreciated, but at the end it lacks the story. Listening to someone playing stoned could be amusing but it could be also annoying; Gong could certainly do much better.

Not bad, at the moments brilliant, but avoid it if you're not familiar with the studio albums.
