3 stars As with their debut album, Soft Machine makes another chaotic, messy, unfocused and to some extent experimental work, with several interesting but only sketchy ideas (such as the great "Hibou, Anemone and Bear" which is the prelude to their next album) that could have been great pieces had they been more elaborate. Even so, this album adds elements that its predecessor did not have and that would be very characteristic of the band: wind instruments -mainly saxophones, with their interesting way of harmonizing-, quite rhythmic piano and sounds closer to Jazz than to pop and the rock of his first album.
