4 stars Another one of those albums that is a prime example of one of the facets of Canterbury- style prog . Khan started much sooner than this release and came after Egg , Arzachel/Uriel (early Egg plus Hillage ) and was the first album after Hillage came back from university. They made one album and then he went on to GonG and the solo carreer we are all familiar with.

As for the music , this is solid prog rock with slight jazz influences ( Canterbury , right?) with a very solid line-up . The vocals are parsimonious but present , leaving the music do the talking . Strictly from memory , one number is relatively weaker than the rest ( on an otherwise very even album ) , I think it is Mountains , but cannot be sure because my album is on loan.
