4 stars If you can't decide what Tim Blake album to buy -- then start with Blake's New Jerusalem. The track "Blake's New Jerusalem" is worth the price of admission. The other tracks fade in my memory but "Blake's New Jerusalem" is a masterpiece of sequenced electronic music with vocals overlaid discussing a very trippy, new-agey chanting/singing about earth energy, ley lines and all the jive that Steve Hillage used to sing about -- higher consciousness and all that hippy Gaia vibe. Blake also synth solos over sequenced synth as well.

"Blake's New Jerusalem" was played over and over by me in the late 70s and on into the early 80s. It was almost ambient meditation music at times and very, very relaxing -- making one even begin to believe in a higher and peaceful way to be -- even if it seemed a pipe (and joint) dream.

Blake's way of doing synths is unique and well worth sampling, (no pun intended). Grab the remastered and expanded version for even more goodies. High recommendations.
