4 stars Pre-Gong Steve Hillage project 's ( with Dave Stewart and other great musicians) only album. And the great one!

Being one of the greatest examples of early Canterbury sound, the music there is a bit different from what we all are expecting from classic Canterbury sound. Still based on heavy blues psychedelic sound, quite strongly structurized, but with some instrumental breaks and slightly jazzy. In fact, much more Uriah Heep, than Gong. But - melodic, excellently arranged, with great musicianship and vocals. For me, this album is classical sound of progressive rock of early 70-s!

Later re-release contains two bonus tracks and good sound, so better go for it. Excellent entrance point for every newcomer to Canterbury sound: accessible, but complex, this album could be a bridge from hard rock or heavy prog to more jazzy/psychedelic sound.

Overall, this album is must have one for each serious progressive rock fan.
