5 stars This is one Evil sounding album, a very dark mood pervades this experimental masterpiece. This my first exposure to this band, so ultimately it took a while to shake of the perplexity at latter albums, though i have grown to love them as well, This Album has a fatter guitar sound to me, Is fatter the word ? well, I get more of Black Sabbath Iron Butterfly vibe out of this Guitar sound, That's where the comparison starts, Black cat Chills me to the bone every time, I fully understand why big time GG fans complain about this album, It really is a stand alone album, To me it feels closer to King Crimson , but On it's own it is a Masterpiece. Why this is not rated in the top 10 of all time astounds me,This is as good as Van der graaf Generator's God bluff , And my favorite GG, Octopus a close second.
