5 stars I bought this album as a teenager, when I had just got interested about progressive rock music. I didn't quite get into this album then, but as I listened to it later, I was totally amazed and grew to love it. I guess the jazzy, ethic and psychedelic elements made this too hard for me to comprehend first, as I was keener on symphonic music back then. Now I'm more interested in this kind of music, and even the rock'n'roll number here doesn't bother me. I think it more as a rebellion towards the basic values of art music genre. Also the mixture of different styles is kept together by the band in really prolific manner, tied together by the musical tone and way of playing. This creates a solid aesthetical line through the different numbers of the album, giving vivid and interesting listening experience. If I should choose a most favorite track of these is songs, I would select with difficulty the tune "Water Curtain Cave", which combines brass driven 1960's jazz theme with a long, ethereal and calm psychedelic sequence. Now I have started hunting this down as a vinyl, as I have only a CD reprint by "Line records", which has poor album covers differing from the original. There's not even analog fuzz included with it, so I hope some kind of LP version would be existing for an affordable price. Please accept my most warmest recommendations of this wonderful record.
