3 stars As far as early 60's/70's Moog explorations go, this is an average release. Mort Garson is an early electronic muscian from Canada that didn't seem to be able to concentrate on one project before he went to another. This is technically his sole release, as Black Mass, An Electronic Journey, and Plantasia were all released under a different moniker.

All the songs here are very "shiny" and "bright", but not in the same way as Kraftwerk's work. Theres plenty of lttle bleeps and Moog washes and some very spacey sounds are conjured up here and there. It sounds terribly dated, which doesn't tend to bother me at all, but it hurts this record greatly. It sounds more suited to being used in a movie than being listened to. some of the songs are somewhat catchy, like the song Hair, with some lines that really get stuck in your head. But aside from the songs Hair, Walking In Space and Let The Sunshine In, this is a good but unexciting record.

Sheavy | 3/5 |
