3 stars A very frustrating experience.

Far better persons than me has reviewed it already so I will be brief and just add my own experiences with this album.

This is the second instalment in this radio gnome trilogy and the best one of them, according to many. It is therefore a frustration for me because I simply does not "get it". Yes, there are some good melody lines and ideas thrown around this album. But the ideas seems scattered around not put into good use with any form of precission. This is a bit of a Gong trade mark, I am afraid. On some albums, this recipe of childish like rhymes mixed with some jazz and avant-garde stuff works. On some, it doesn't. This in the latter category. There are some good stuff her. Lots of it, in my view. But the overall feel is that this is not a great album. But it is not to be underestimated though. A good Gong album and that's it.
