From Progarchives.com, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Album released in 1975 "Shamal". Three people (Steve Hillage, Daevid Allen, and Gilli Smyth) are lost. Advanced work to new area on new member. There is a progressive unparalleled originality though it is a transition period and a shapeless work. The tone of the percussion instrument such as vibraphones and glockenspiels is shocking. Produce is Nick Mason. "SHAMAL" is a wind of the northwester that blows around the Persian Gulf. The photograph of the member of the jacket on the inside is preeminently good-looking.
