4 stars Well, You, ''Radio Gnome Invisible Vol. 3'' is really, really, really, some fuck-top music. If you like space/psychedelic jams with a touch of crazyness and non-sense, here's the group you looked for. Forget the catchy chorus or the famous power-chords, this album (and also this band) is another dimension. To me, Gong is to music what platypus are to animals. They are weird, quite unique, have characteristics you couldn't even categorize and still make sense at the time. With off-beat drum lines, chaotic saxophone solos, alien-like back vocals and whisperings, jazz-fusion related bass sections, hard-to-follow guitars, Gong definitly win the ''World weirdest band and album ever''. I couldn't rate this 5 stars, even if tortured, cause it's such a twisted peice of art, this is not to recommand to anyone, while in the same time, a great thing to look at. To me You, ''Radio Gnome Invisible Vol. 3'' is a funny and at some times good thing to listen and peel, but is not the kind of album you will want to put quite often on your cd player. If Progressive rock is about guitars, drums, bass, keyboards, flute and saxophone for you, than Gong is not for you. If you are about getting into the most unnacessible music possible, trying to listen hundreds of time to a cd you don't like till it becomes your favorite one, then go for Gong and have a fabulous time. Great musicians for sure (or whatever they are suppose to make (just kidding )).
