4 stars The third of the teapot trilogy from Gong. And a trippy one too. I am not so sure if this is my cup of tea though.

Gong mixes Daevid Allen's children rhymes and avant-garde drone bits with long spaced out jazzy trips into outer space on this album. The opening tracks are all about this teapot mythology which tells a story. I have never bought into this mythology so fast forward to the tasty bits starting with Master builder and some excellent keyboards and solos. A sprinkling of clouds follows and we are still in a good place. The best parts are at the end with songs like The isle of everywhere and You never blow your trip forever.

In short, the mercifully many spaced out jazz bits are truly superb and the main meal on this album. Gyla Smith also does a great job here on vocals. I am not a big fan of this album, but even I recognice this is an excellent additon to anyone's album collection.

4 stars
