4 stars This fusion period is my favorite era of Gong, and this is my favorite albums of the era. For a long time, this was the only Gong album I had heard. Who is that Daevid Allen guy anyway?

The music is pure, exciting fusion, driven mostly by Pierre Moerlin's superb drums and percussion and Mireille Bauer' fantastic marimba and vibe work. It also doesn't hurt to have the great Allan Holdsworth at his best here. The sound, being so percussion driven, is reminiscent of Bill Bruford's fusion band, if you need a reference point.

This would be a great place to start a fusion collection. It was for me.

Evolver | 4/5 |
