4 stars 4.5 stars. I finally got my hands on this out of print album through the "Progressive Italia Gli Anni '70 Vol. 4" box set. It was worth it just for this album but of the six cds in the the set I didn't have four of them. Love the cover art too. It's kind of cool that this trio includes former CAMPO DI MARTE bass player Richard Ursillo. Man this is one spacey album.TANGERINE DREAM came to mind often but instead of sequencers we get bass, guitar and drums which I prefer anyway. I can't say enough about the spacey sound of this record though.There really is only one mistake in my opinion and that's the "Do You Love Me ?" track. Where did this one come from ? Was it the label forcing them to do a single ? Anyway less than 3 minutes of it isn't going to ruin my enjoyment of this album but talk about being out of place.

"Fragments Of Light" is my favourite.The strummed guitar and synth washes sound incredible. "Nucleur War In Your Brain" is a very spacey soundscape from start to finish. "Music In Painting In The Air" has strummed guitar in such a warm atmosphere. Just a great sound to this one that I don't want to end. "Windopax And The Stone Sender" reminds me a lot of PINK FLOYD.The only track that does actually. I think it's the great sounding guitar mostly.

"Spacer Energy Age" has vocals for the first time and I don't mind them here as we get lots of synths and electronics with guitar. Drums join in too. "Metafel + Mefalac" is very spacey as the atmosphere hums loudly. "Space Closure" has some excellent sounding drums, bass and synths to start.The tempo picks up around 2 minutes. Drums to the fore later.Spacey winds end it. "Music Without Gravity" is a short and very spacey track.

"Do You Love Me ?" as I mentioned earlier sounds like a shot at a single. It's so out of place here. "Life Beyond The Darkness" has guitar, percussion and synths. "Telepathic Children" is again spacey with guitar playing over the top this time.

I would have given this 5 stars if not for that one track but I do think it's a negative.
