4 stars Excellent mallet percussion-induced fusion. My main problem here is that Alan Holdworth is not as prevalent on this release as he was on the last Gong album (Expresso I or Gazeuse). That being said, this is still a great album, and worth checking out. Pierre Moerlen is an outstanding drummer and percussionist. All the other players are really top- notch and experienced as well and blend well with each other; you can tell. Do not be fooled though, this is nothing like the Psychedelic Gong with Daevid Allen. This is an entirely instrumental album. In the end, it all works out and this album ends up being an excellent latter period work, but is still not as good as Gazeuse, though both are recommended.
