3 stars Nick Greenwood's main claim to fame is being part of the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and fans of the Canterbury scene also know him as a member of Steve Hillage's short-lived group Khan, but his sole solo effort - Cold Cuts - hasn't remotely received the attention that either of the other two has enjoyed over the years. It's an interesting blend of the dramatic psychedelia of the Crazy World and the trippier brand of Canterbury that Khan specialised in, and whilst it isn't a classic on the level of the Crazy World's debut, or even the sole Khan album, for those who are into psychedelic/Canterbury obscurities it isn't a complete waste of time.

At the same time, Greenwood still seems to be finding his musical voice here and the album is a little hit-and-miss; it's a shame his solo career ended here, since it would have been interested to see what he came up with had he persisted and boiled down the influences here into a cohesive sound of his own.
