4 stars Compositionally, this is in my opinion one of the best Soft Machine albums. The whole album is very constistent, but the music also leaves lots of space for beautiful melodies and solos. Everything sounds in it's place here. There is still lots of diversity here on this album and the music shifts from groove to groove. Actually, I didn't had that much trouble with the record at first listen, but the record still gets better with every listen. Still, their First, Second and Third albums, seems to show more energy. This might turn the album to a slightly less exciting recording, compared to the days with Kevin Ayers or Hugh Hopper and Robert Wyatt. Still, the brilliant compositional work, beautiful melodies and heavenly solos are elements that makes the album exciting enough to rate it with four stars.
