4 stars This posthumous release is just as good as the sole debut album, however different it may be. Actually they will disband in 76 without having to managed to release these 74 recordings.

The only real two links you will find between these albums are that all tracks on this album are similar to the most out-of-place track Ring Of Saturn on their first album: this album is definitely more of a scoarching space-rock /psych rock than the debut that was more in the acid-folk prog realm. The other link is actually reverse as the second part of the Almond raga track brings you back to the debut album with its strong indian music flavour. The last track Childhood Trees veers into more ambient music with soft vocals monotonous chants not being really on par with the rest of the album , but does not alter the average album contents.

For those into heroic fantasy , the artwork of the booklet ies reminiscent of a cross between Roger Dean worlds and Pallas's The Sentinel artwork but done on computer imagery. Impressive fold out mini-poster but no real link with the music.
