2 stars A more consistent (than Sixth), but otherwise equally forgettable, addition to the post-Wyatt SM collection. The first two tracks are the only ones that are memorable. After this album, the Softs continued to go downhill. That they continued to use the name Soft Machine is a testament, I think, to how good the early stuff was, and thus to the drawing power of the name for live concerts. It is a shame that Ratledge and co decided to milk the name and thus legacy of the early Softs music in such a fashion.
