3 stars Sonic screwdrivers and scouse singalongs...

The Good: The pounding bassline of the instrumental One of These Days is almost mesmerizing and makes it one of their strongest opening tracks. If you listen carefully you can even hear the Dr. Who theme tune. And then of course there is the spectral behemoth known simply as Echoes! Truly captivating and narrowly edging out Shine on You Crazy Diamond as their greatest epic.

The Bad: Sadly, the album stagnates towards the middle with what I can only describe as semi-progressive filler. Football chants and outtakes from Led Zeppelin III are not a good combination at the best of times, but sticking them in-between such psychedelic goodness is very disappointing indeed.

The Verdict: Their best work prior to DSOTM.

Starhammer | 3/5 |
