3 stars 01. Afterwards A beautiful body of Hugh Banton is the whole basis of the song, along with wha guitar and the beautiful voice of Peter Hammil. A beauty of melody together almost entirely from the guitar (most of the disk is). From now on we have half of a solo keyboard sensational.

02. Orthenthian Street (Part I) / 03. Orthenthian Street (Part II) Guitar again, something that the guitar be the main gives a completely different touch the band, as they are not folk, not even the guitar. The first part is easy to work with prominent tribal hit of Guy Evans. The second part is guitar, voice and keyboard in his introduction to all deceiving. Because the sequence is quite chaotic. The voice of Hammil is always very welcome, weird but good.

04. Running Back Totally psychedelic, good bottom line. Full of climates, a landscape Arabic means the air. A total surprise traveler.

05. Into The Game It has a very nice guitar, a great climate, a great melody. I think it's the highlight of the disc. Full of purpose and an instrumental and atypical, and of course a good piano line that makes all the difference.

06. Aerosol Gray Machine The sticker funny and sensational disk. If it was music I bought an advertisement (laughter).

07. Black Smoke Yen A small instrumental for the music that follows.

08. Aquarian Half tribal, half psychedelic, Keith Ellis of the low timbre has a super serious and 'dangerous' in a general psicodelia general. A base guitar and a guitar solando almost all the time. The vocals are very good, and the chorus is one of the most exciting I've ever heard. Reminded me quite a phase of Space Oddity David Bowie.

09. Necromancer Without a shadow of doubt obscure track and deep, but with a good melodic chorus. With superb voice, especially the half forward the song is taking shape and growing so convincingly.

10. Octopus This is beginning Astronomy Domine (Pink Floyd ) And this is by no means bad. Very psychedelic and full of changes and changes in noise and sounds crazy. Especially in parts of keyboards. Doidera extreme.

Every band has a different beginning, especially the bands progs, this disc as almost all the bands first disc is only the embryo, but I think we should start at the beginning (laughs).
