3 stars An interesting debut album. The early version of the band claimed influences by John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen and AMM. The experimental side is heavily on display as some songs wash in and out, barely hanging to a thread of structure. We've Come For Your Children and Waterwheel are the most 'normal' pieces here, drum machine driven with powerful guitar. Anu is a nice building piece, like a melodic Saucerful of Secrets filtered through Gong and several hits of acid. A cover of Hawkwind's Sonic Attack gives another point of reference. The final two tracks have the band down to a three piece and more in the Amon Duul side of space rock. Chaotic, but to a purpose, I'd recommend this for fans of really out there freak out bands of the late 60's and early 70's.
