2 stars Funny, this album had only two ratings till today. One 5-stars, and another 1-star. Let's try to understand, what this album is for real.

First of all, there are not too many Gong elements. Drummer Pierre Moerlen for sure is strongly associated with Gong fame, bassist Hansford Rowe is not absolute stranger, but more connected with Gongzilla. Other musicians are team ,working under glorious name for commercial success.

Music there isn't punk or hip-hop. It's a big plus. But it is such cheese and commercial jazz and world fusion, that every Gong fan could be shocked. Pleasant and sweet melodies, very polished sound, plenty of pop elements, beautiful voices.

Possibly, not a bad music. Just has no connection with real Gong, or any form of progressive rock. At all.

1 stars Very short review, cause there's not much to say. I had a chance to hire it and listen to it a couple of times. This is decidedly for completists only. We can glimpse here and there a very faint shade of "good-old" Gong and instrumental skills of musicians are all right. But the sound is just a ... (read more)
