4 stars Such an amazing album! To be honest, I don't like too much the first four tracks, but "Song for insane times" it's a great song and the following ones get much and much better.

"Lady Rachel" is one of my all time favourite songs from the whole Canterbury Scene cathalog, "Stop this train" is pretty cool too and "Oleh, oleh, Bandu Bandong" is from now on a song that I need to practice on my drum-set.

There is too much left from Soft Machine's classic sound, KEVIN AYERS had made a very underrated Canterbury Scene classic album which needs and deserves more people to listen to it.

My personal oppinion about "Joy of a toy" is that if you enjoy soft but very interesting and well done music you have to get it into your collection (I hope to get it into mine someday).

Very nice album! Four stars
