4 stars A real stunner (for stoners) this album is some kind of UFO really cruising in the smoke-filled realms of your dreamy mind. I was never shure that this titlte did not also mean Just A Joke (not really ) or Just A Toke (more likely - the censorship existed in big companies - EMI). Anyway , a real gem of the Psych/Proto-prog genre , those two long pieces are simply superb but not flawless and I also listened to this many times in a row , often the same side (as I was often too wasted or busy with girlfriend and wishing that this album could be the lenght of a Klaus Schulze or Tangerine Dream album. Then I got up and changed the album side and listened to it a few times in a row. I was never a fan of drum solos and this one is not too long but like all of them dispensable. The remarks that Mr. Proghead makes are also quite correct.
