5 stars As with a couple of the other reviewers I picked up this album in the early 70s, partly because of the Roger Dean cover and partly from having heard Mix Your Mind With The Moonbeams and Watching The World Go By at the infamous London Hospital Tavern which had the worst beer and the best rock DJ anywhere.

The album is very varied and contains one of the most bizzare interludes ever in the electro folk violin thrash in Watching the World. The guitar work is excellent and the overall effect of complete absorbtion. A thotoughly electrifying album that I never fail to enjoy (and play at least twice each time). It summed up at the time the way that progressive rock was keen to absorb and mutate other styles rather than trashing them as is so common now.

I play this album quite often still and rate it as one of my all time favourites - an absolute classic!
