5 stars This is the second Gong album I ever heard. I liked it then, and still do now. My 13 year old son loves it - a next generation Gong fan. Here comes my only complaint, because of this - I wish it wasn't so rude and totally taken with drugs. Some may moan about the silly bits, but my silly son loves these the best (a great intro to Gong!). I'm still not sure about the space whispers, but when it finally builds up to the guitar freak-out in 'I Never Glid Before' (my favorite Gong track), then you are truly in space. By the way, why is this 'Canterbury Scene' - what's that supposed to mean - this is truly in space (just listen to Other Side of the Sky - you can't go wrong!). I'm going for 5 stars because every prog rock fan should know about the Pot head pixies, octave doctors and zero the hero - who could not know about these? Oily Way is a great track for a good summary of these. This is a great album to introduce the younger generation to progressive music, because it (and Flying Teapot) are so funny. I've had a number of 13 to 18 year olds drawing the Flying Teapot on the beach - along with the Pyramid from Dark Side of the Moon (need I say more?)
