5 stars Gosh!

As soon as you have heard the first notes from "In Circles" the gorgeous opening number of this album, there is no doubt that the "experience" will be quite interesting. This long track is a truly a wild stuff, but at the same time it has rounded edge, mostly thanks to fine vocals.

In terms of "experience", no need to add that the magical shadow of the master (Hendrix) is floating during this incredible song. It is a highlight of this album and an amazing kick off.

To be honest, "T2" is also effective while they decide to record sweet and psychedelic rock ballads. Keyboards add some prog touch indeed to "J.L.T.

Another excellent track is "No More White Horses". It opens again with a furious guitar solo, not alien to Jimi or Clapton. The psychedelic feeling remain through the peaceful vocals. The whole is a fabulous trip (I bet you) through a remarkable song: the hypnotic bass play provides an hypnotic riff during the instrumental parts and what to say about the guitar work from Keith Cross? Simply brilliant I guess. "No More White Horses" is a superb track and another highlight.

The epic "Morning" is a perfect digest of the whole album.

It starts very smoothly, almost as "J.L.T." and evolves brilliantly into hard to heavy territories on such a fantastic crescendo scheme. All this being covered with the smooth vocals from Peter Dunton who brings a sense of sensibility and tranquillity amongst these hard sounds.

OK, it might be a little long (just over twenty-one minutes), but I'm just found of this type of music (the Hendrix syndrome again). It is a vibrant return to these late mid sixties full of excesses but so important for the further development of rock music.

This song is a great combination between heavy and tranquil parts. It is really moving while Dunton sings. Some solid soloing are dispersed all along this long track and keep the interest of this song pretty high during the whole length of this fabulous number.

The CD release comes with three bonus tracks which are a great complement to the original release. Same and great Hendrix filiation during both "Questions & Answers" and the jazzier "CD".

I like the former one in particular which could have sit perfectly on the original album. The same fine atmosphere can be felt (vocals, riffs and beat). It almost starts as the Jimi version of Hey Joe but quickly leans towards a huge guitar solo again. This is one of my favourite song from this album (but almost each one is so fine).

"CD" is more of a jam "experience": no doubt that you will be captivated by these musical moments which reminds me furiously of "Voodoo Chile". And the demo version form the opening track of this great album is such a fine way to loop the loop.

This little known band produced A HUGE album which is an extremely good picture of the late sixties/early seventies hard-psychedelic music. I am emotional giving the masterpiece to this album which is not so hard to find hopefully (some 10? on Amazon's marketplace - France).
