Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is the eight releases from "Soft Machine". And my eighth review is full of criticism or maybe objectivism as I would could (sorry Febus).

Let's only talk about the positive signs of this album, which is quite more accessible in comparison with their work from "Third" until "Seven".

Some instrumental passage borrows A LOT to "Cinema Show" of whom you might know. The comparison with some of another wonderful giant of the music I have loved since the very first listening is quite obvious while you listen to this album (Santana of course).

In all, there are fine (but scarce) moments to experience during this album. But not too many as I have outlined. None the less, this is by far the most accessible work from "Soft Machine" since their debut album.

As usual, I will upgrade this "Soft machine" to three stars. As a tribute to Antoine; whom I dreadfully miss.
