4 stars This Lp was for a number of years very hard to obtain in the UK. It had an almost legendary status among gongs fans possible because of that fact. We finally got a shipping from the continent and were not disappointed. Although this lp is clearly a soundtrack the music is certainly gong and falls into the camembert electrique period. Some of the music is extended versions of that LPs themes. I love this record and the simple but insistent bass riffing that ties it together. Despite the later adventures of Gong in England I feel that this band never improved on this album. The only downside is the lack of Tim Blake, who's synthesizers might well have added to this spacey album. Allen's lyrics are about riding in a motorcycle race and fit well. The lyrics are a vast improvement on most Gong nonsense by the way. The sound quality is better than any other recording from the french period and that alone makes this essential for gong fans. If your into space rock by this it will not disappoint.
