5 stars This album alone is a MASTERPIECE! Set aside Facelift which is a live recording and carries much psychedelic that sometimes i find unnecessary, yet this song has in it some great ideas and is very strong, all the other three songs are simply put AMAZING! Moon In June with Wyatt's lyrics adds something different, great melodies that go along with Ratledge's chords.The piano and organ sounds are also amazing.We're talking for a structured song here.My personal highlight . Slightly all the time is another amazing song a lot jazzier than the others, a bass lines from Hopper repete and changing tone over the chord changes of the keyboards. Dean's sax melodies stuck in your head for good.Jimmy Hastings plays Flute in one part.The rhythms in this one are outstanding! Out Bloody Rageous is another dynamic song more similar to Slightly all The time.Great solos from Ratledge, and a lot of psychedelic keys, with steady besslines and again amazing solos from elton Dean. Ther is nothing like this album, at least for me. Once you push play you are ready for a 40 minute journey. I myself occasionally listen to this twice in a raw. This is a MASTERPIECE!
