5 stars now it is time for razzle dazzle on this album. Such a masterpiece in the early 70's. A milestone of free form fun you know Soft Machine. with four groovin swingin tracks covering fom psyhcadalic to Terry Riley you know this is Soft Machine at there best. Facelift starts out with,well to tell the truth I don't know what it is but it gets you attention.then builds up with the horns and truns into something from Austin Powers. Hugh Hoppers finest musical aspect. Slightly all the time is nice and light while Moon in June with it's home run lyrics is alright by me. Then finally with the Terry Riley loops comes Out Bloody Rageous which is kind of like a sandwitch with the opening being the bread the instermental part being the filling and back to the ending being the bread again. As I said on Seven whats not to like!
