4 stars It's too bad that Cornucopia only did this one album. It's a very accomplished (and yet very chaotic) album.

The first track, 'Day of a Daydream Believer', is a sprawling, side-long acid trip. Very much a psychedelic track with jazz elements thrown in here and there. As others have pointed out, there are a lot of similarities to VDGG. The last 5 minutes of the first track are truly a testament to that.

The second track, 'Morning Sun - Version 127 (For the Charts)' is obviously an attempt at a single. I'm not sure if it got any airplay, but it does sound like a pretty good song for a single. Has a very late 60s vibe to it.

The third track, 'Spot On You, Kids', is the other epic track on this album, clocking in at around 12 and a half minutes. The jazz elements are a lot stronger on this track, as well as the VDGG sound. The organ strays from a regular Hammond sound to a vibrating, wobbly organ sound partway through the track, giving it a very mystic and psychedelic edge to it. At the end, the music fades into the sound of a carnival.

'Spot On You, Kids' segues into the fourth and final track, 'And the Madness...'. It tries somewhat to lean towards VDGG (giving a FAINT vibe of 'Whatever Would Robert Have Said?'), but comes out somewhere between that and the typical psychedelic closing track. It's the end of the trip, and the madness ends.

All in all, a very good album. 4.5 stars from me.
