5 stars Even if it is not a "progresisve rock", it's importance for the genre is very big. It bears some traces of '60 music, but at the same times it's miles ahead of the time (1968) and still remains an absolutely convincing. The sound is a little rough but one may wonder if it's not another plus of this album. Instrumental playing is fantastic, melodies are perfect, even singing is great,although Wyatt or Ayers aren't the real vocalists. A very positive point of this album (and the next, too) is a sense of humour, not often to be found in progressive rock. All tracks are connected, songs fluently change into instrumental pieces and everything fits together very well. Rather to be listened in whole. (just as usual with albums reviewed in progarchives). Highly recomended
