4 stars More is one of my alltime favourites. It is by no means their best effort, but it still resonates as a well crafted movie soundtrack that is 10 times better than the picture itself, which fits the hippie stereotype like a well oiled thermometer up your bum. Stick with the music, if you want an advice from a guy who hasnīt spent all day sucking juices out of grandmaīs Mexican cacti.

If I ever heard a piece of music that compliments the early beauty of mourning, it would be Cirrus Minor. It sounds as sunrise breaking through white mist clouds ever so gently. The organ ending by Rick Wright is sheer brilliance, and should stand as a clear cut example of what you can do instrumentally without having to play 9 zillion notes a minute. Instead we have acoustic guitars and an organ that sounds like itīs flying around sluggishly in the wind - or like itīs imitating the waves of the ocean slowly hitting the face of the beach. BANG! Youīre slammed in the head with a mace as the Nile Song thunders itīs heavy pre-punk sound out through the speakers, and Iīm instantly reminded why I love this band so much. Everything goes... So we have an album that is soaked in hippie ideals and sheep herd sounds on one hand, but we are also in the presence of something quite different: The Nile Song and Ibiza bar are extremely heavy (- especially when you count in the fact that this recordīs from 69), while Green is the Colour alongside Cymbaline should fit perfectly on a Beatles album from the same era.

During the summertime is when this record gets airtime from me. Itīs music for a quiet day in the garden with humming bees and a hot female. Itīs music that soothes your hangover - just skip the second and 9th song ;-) Itīs also a bringer of endless imagination to this listener, who can picture himself swooping through the orange desert sands of the Sahara whenever the main theme sets of.

If I were to be categorized as a fanboy of any sorts, I would probably end up in the enormous Floyd armies. Pink Floyd taught me how to listen to music from a very young age - with my ears. -Thereīs really no sense in borrowing your momīs, even if it only is for a short while ... What I am trying to say is that the experience of listening, will always be something inadvertently personal. Thatīs why I am finding it seriously difficult to give this album less than 4 stars.
