4 stars After so many years Gong released their album in almost classic line-up. I was very attracted by this album.

What about music, it is a mixed bag. First of all, there are no experiments, great new ideas or sounds. But it is Gong, you feel it at any moment. Gilli's voice here and there will bring you back in spacey and dreamy seventies. Some drumming as well ( but big part of songs has quite monotonous drumming ,almost drum machine style).

All album is rich in sax sound, for good and for bad. In best moments, you are just hypnotised by melodic sax solos. In worst - sax sounds as easy listening piece, filling all space with backing drumming machine sound. All album sound is soft, warm,comfortable, quite unusual for Gong. Again, in some places because of that all music is balanced on the edge with pop- rock.

I believe that Gong fans will find many attractive places in this album's music, so album is more good than bad in all. I think weakest moments there are drumming and very polished sound. Again, after listening of all album my impression was not too bad.

Something like 3,5... And "Magdalena" is excellent song on there.
