5 stars yes, yes, warning, be careful with the five stars but what else could I put ? To me, this is THE soft machine album, and soft machine is THE prog rock band of the '70s. You call it what you want, fusion, jazz, jazz-rock, pop-rock (in france, it is where you find it in the stores !!!), who cares, it is out-bloody rageous !!!! I read scepticism about the structure of moon in june by one of the voters, I think he doesn't know well enough the discography of the band, since that song is at first a mixture of two precedent short songs (cheered by a voter that misses david allen presence !! But where else can he influence better than with the gong universe ???), linked by powerful ratledge and wyatt solos (almost inexistant in soft machine I and II)... And facelift ??? Boring ??? To me, the best of the album (difficult to choose one amongst the four), crazy ratledge on the keyboard, wyatt on fire on the drums, hopper always there with his walking and running bass and dean blasting saxello solos... what else can we expect ! Five stars without a doubt !!!
