4 stars 90% spacerock and 10% Canterbury.

The combination of a Mayan temple and space is a nice thought. The mayan people became quiet popular because of their hallucinatory drugs like wheet. Mayan shamans could have used it to communicate with god, which was the center of the milky way. Therefor astrology was very developed by the Mayan people. Gong used this Mayan spacy, halucinatory image for this Radio Gnome Invisible Vol. 3 - You. As should be expect from the front cover this is mainly a spacerock record with only short canterbury introductions on both sides.

The Canterbury parts are homouristic with it´s vocals accompanied by flutes, xylophones and keys and some spacy effects. Also the percussion plays an important role here. The spaceparts contain long saxophone solo´s and guitarsolo´s. Steve Hillage shows on the first side his spacy repeating guitarwork. The spacetrack on the second side is based on a funky bassline creating funkadelic spacerock.

This record is mainly instrumental with long echoing spaceparts. Most parts are nice, but only a few moments are brilliant. The spacerock never becomes dark or acidic, but stays in the psychedelic rock realm. A nice addition to a spacerock collection. Especially advised for spacerock lovers!
