5 stars The time has come for me to submit my thoughts on this album. Personally I have a strong obsession with this album so I couldn't rate it less than 6 stars - heck, it is one of my top 10 prog albums I've ever heard, period !!! The mix is perfect ; awesome Bass playing from Nick Greenwood (whose rare solo album 'Cold Cuts' should be included on the Archives - superb, bluesy proto-prog with symphonic and psych touches - 5 star for sure), Eric Peachy's precise Drumming, Hillage's out-of-this-world spacey guitaring and my favourite, or let that be OUR favourite, keyboard player Dave Stewart, with his trademark Fuzz- Organ taking equal lead with Hillage's guitar. I can't add more to what has been already said about this album - Hillage is GOD, and anything with Stewart's buzz-saw organ rates highly for me. For those music lovers who go for super spacey guitar work and outrageous organ playing with a tight, busy rhythm section - this is THE ONE. Half Space- Rock and half Canterbury - I guess I could go on.....and on.....
