3 stars Alright, so this is actually a band formed by the monsters of Canterbury Scene and that supposes that this album should be a whole masterpiece but clearly it is not.

Sometimes it gets close to the classic Canterbury sound but in general it's the least similar to that sound; what we have here is more similar to some different kind of Prog bands like Bark Psychosis, Kayo Dot or even Maudlin of the Well. The music is very distorsioned, heavy but still with all of this I believe it is a very good album.

If you try to compare this album with some of the classics of Canterbury Scene you are going to be very disappointed but if you listen to it just like a random band and try to not think that Daevid Allen, Pip Pyle, Hugh Hopper and Mark Kramer are in fact the musicians behind it, you can actually get very satisfied with this album.

What I'm trying to say here is that this is actually a very good album if you are NOT expecting to hear the classic style of Canterbury Scene albums by the seventies.

Just three stars for this baby.
