5 stars This was a big surprise album for me, looking at the title i was expecting the usual space rock stuff, but insted i got one of the best Symphonic rock albums i have ever heard, this album is almost like Hillage and Stewart wanted to show the prog world they master the melodic symphonic rock thing with ease before they moved on to space rock and more avant gard stuff yust like a painter paint a tradional masterpice before doing some wierd salvador dali stuff. This is a true Canterbury gem, sure it dont realy sound like your typical canterbury band, but who ceares its realy brilliant probobly some of the best songs Hillage has ever writen, if your looking for the avantgard of Egg or the space sillines of Gong dont look here this is pure symphonic rock brilliance that any prog nutt shuld be abel to understand and love. 5 big stars, to bad this amazing group only did 1 album, but what an album!

my 2008 remastered edition of the album allso got 2 nice bonus tracks one previously unrelesed short but very good song Break the chain and the first orginal version of Mixed up man of the Mountains, very good, the sound ofcourse of the whole album is realy superb.

Zargus | 5/5 |
