From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars "Angel's Egg" is a pure musical poem created by musicians with a really free mind. Gong was established in France. Paris, in these years, was a very creative town where it was possible to listen to very different kind of music ( jazz, rock, but also world music and especially african ). This very stimultating environment certainly had a great influence on Aellen, Hillage and Co.

"Angel's Egg" is one of the most ambitious record I ever heard and at the same time one of the less pretentious. Songs are short, but they are more ideas in each one than in most of the epic pieces often overrated by prog listeners. This music is described by some reviewers as weird. That's right. Angel's egg express some very unusual emotions in music and can be from one song to another or in the same song ironic, humoristic, poetic, provocative, sensitive, agressive, sensual.

5 stars : a masterpiece of music ( not just of progressive music ).

H.NOT | 5/5 |
