5 stars I am going to be blatantly honest in this review, this is the greatest psychadelic album ever made.

Yes, better than Piper at the Gates of Dawn, better than Sgt. Peppers, better than any Jimi Hendrix or Iron Butterfly album, the absolute greatest.

This album basically contains all the elements of symphonic prog with a psychadelic setting, the songs are catchy, the go into each other, they develop and change, and there is even an instrumental 'epic' ("So Boot if it All").

Despite this there is certainly a degree of jazz structure, meaning that it can be hard to define one song from the next, and thus challenging to appreciate in the first couple of listenings. The payout for those listenings however, is as I said earlier, 'the greatest psychadelic album ever made'.
