3 stars This was a very interesting album to receive and review. First of all I am sure I like their sound ond their skillfull playing. What I hear here is both Canterbury, Space rock and Avant-garde. The result of this mixture is interesting. Remember this is my first listening to this record and band. I wouldn't be surprised if my experience of them will grow. It uses to do that in prog. This is the mostly french band Gongs sixth record so sure they have hade time to perfect their style a lot.

There is a lot of great stuff on this record: beautiful flutes, saxophones, guitars and even song on a few tracks. Some tracks are worth four stars of five: "APHP Advice" with excellent song, "Master Builder" with a dominant feeling, "Perfect Mystery" with its fun and eventful melody and "The Isle och Everywhere" with gives a feeling of perfection.

What makes this album not a record totally in my taste is the space-feeling. I think to few things happen in this music. If they had had more vocals or more melodies, this would almost have been perfect but now it's to vague and psychedelic. Something peculiar is the sound of fairytale characters you can hear sometimes. I really thought this was interesting and I won't stop listen to You or Gong.
