Prog Reviewer
4 stars This is a very good album in the space-rock vein, proving that the genré was not dead in 1977. The beginning opener "Elastick Minute" somehow reminds me of Ash Ra Tempel's "Inventions for Electric Guitar" and also of the beginning of the track "Allez Ali Baba Blacksheep Have You Any Bullshit Mama Maya Mantram" from the live album of Planet Gong, "Live Floating Anarchy". Tracks like "Crystal Palace" (superb bass work by Patrice Congas here), "Aqua Deva" / "Intergalactic Cosmic Triolet" (these two tracks float into each other) or "Orange Climax" (starting with a Jimi Hendrix theme, "Burning of the Midnight Lamp") really have a free floating feeling to them, while "22 Broad Street" is almost rock'n roll. Christian Boulé sounds a lot like Steve Hillage, which is probably why Hillage had him play rhythm guitar in his band for some time. Anyone who likes the early solo albums of Hillage will like this album too.
