4 stars It is a crying shame that Khan only released this album.

The music on this album is full of intricate, but still melodic and jazzy keyboard and spacy guitar driven compositions in the classic Canterbury style. Some of the music is superb. Most notably the opening title track. The rest is also very good.

The best parts of this album is the typical Canterbury parts with intricate jazzy spacy parts. That's when this album become really interesting. There are as I stated some less interesting parts here too. But most of the album is the Canterbury scene at it's best. The album is also a crossover between SuperSister and Hatfield & The North. Maybe this is the first album anyone interested in the Canterbury scene should try.

The musicians (including Steve Hillage and Dave Stewart) later went on to their solo careers and bands like Hatfield & The North, National Health and Gong. All of these bands are good. But Khan and their only album deserves a lot of praise.

4 stars from me to one of the best Canterbury scene albums.
