5 stars This album is seriously one of my all-time favorites. It was my first real meeting with the music of the Soft Machine and it inspired me like it obsessed me... The marriage between jazz and progressive rock, makes the ultra-complex compositions sound very diverse and creative. Moon in June has got the most anti-mainstream melody, I've ever heard, Slightly all the Time and Outy Bloody Rageous sounds really dark and hypnotic, and the absolute masterpieve on this album for me is Facelift, every time again when I hear this composition, I'm totally admired by the parts of the sax-riffs (starts after 5 minutes) and the very chaotic climax. Though pop-music became really experimental around 1970, it remains incredible to me that this album dates from that year.
