3 stars I really can't decide what I think of this album. Is it brilliant or simply droning noises? Is it an experiment of great musical achievement or some mad scientist flushing away on the mellotron? I don't know. I guess I kind of lean towards some sort of brilliance, as far as this album is concerned.

The greatest thing about it is really the mysteries surrounding it all. I love the feel of the album and the fact that it is shrouded in a haze of uncertainty and mystery. Listening to it I get a strong feel of the times, of occult leanings, Dennis Wheatley, misty meadows and mansions in the far. That is enough to make me joyous. It is stories of bands like Monument, crazy parties and demented, charred mad men playing keyboards all through the night in some sort of quasi-religious haze. I'm making all this up, naturally. It is just my imagination running wild but that's the great thing about music, isn't it?

I can't recommend any track as superior to any other on the album. They are all as great or bad as the other. I guess the music could be described as the soundtrack for mind travel. It is pleasant enough (and unsettling). I wish I could get hold of a copy or better still, get it on CD. I would buy it without thinking twice.

Conclusion: The mythology is greater than the music but it is entertaining and weird. In summary it is worth three stars. Two for the music and an extra star for the mysteries surrounding it.
