5 stars This is THE hippy album by one of the UK's most under-rated and unacknowledged guitar greats.

Steve Hillage composed (along with members from his previous band, Gong, & Dave Stewart) this exceptional album as a way of explaining to fish what it is to be human.

Lacking a mutual language, he and his pals utilised the most direct form of sole to sole communication (music) and I have to say that even after listening to this album (off and on) for 25 years it still works at every level.

This is proper music - intricate, involving, meditative and finally uplifting.

With many references to the salmon the fresh (water) listener may think, "What the hell is this?" but give it one play through and you'll be hooked!

Turn on, tuna in and chill out!
