3 stars It is a sad fact that this band has never been blessed with a great greatest hits or essential album. A type of album which will entice those who are curious about Soft Machine to buy more albums from them. Soft Machine is therefore an exlusive shop where new fans have to part with a lot of money to get access.

Triple Echo is a triple LP, but has yet to be released as a digital download or a CD. Hopefully, that will change. But I am not counting on it.

The songs here are from the debut to Softs, the last good Soft Machine album. The collection of songs are strange to say at least. No Facelift and no Moon In June. The best songs from Bundles has also been omitted. Most of the songs here are very good, but this album is nowhere as good as it could be. Triple Echo is by no means the essential Soft Machine. Maybe it is best to let Triple Echo rest in peace without any further re-release. Just of kindness towards Soft Machine.
