2 stars Pierre Moerlen's Gong recorded some great albums (most notably GAZEUSE and EXPRESSO II) but this is not one of them. Its repetitive minimalism may remind you of New Age, or of Mike Oldfield's woollier moments. The A-side boast just ONE superb vibraphone solo (on 'Supermarket') and on the B-side there's a highly welcome appearance by Allan Holdsworth, but most of the remainder sounds like elevator muzak. I wish I could sound a little more upbeat, but I have to be honest. Incidentally, I've never had any problems enjoying Daevid Allen's Gong as well as Pierre Moerlen's. But this is definitely not one of Pierre's better efforts.
