2 stars This album was recorded by Ramases and Selket, a British couple who claimed to have been visited by dead Egyptians, and took their names (go figure). What helped them immensely was their back up band, the original members of 10CC, who had just recently had some airplay from the album they had recorded as "Hotlegs".

The sound, to me, is a blend of late 60's psychedelia, like Jefferson Airplane, and the trippy space rock of Daevid Allen's Gong. And while the music is fair, especially where the 10CC sound manages to get through, the proto new age and possible acid induced naive lyrics tend to make this effort mostly tedious. In fact, the insipid Come Back Jesus is simply painful to listen to.
