3 stars A Bit Boring Journey

I think this album is overrated if given over the three stars.

Being from one of the pioneers in progressive rock, one tends to be lenient, especially if one bears in mind the psychedelic gem The Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Not that the talents do not come up here and there, but, on the whole, the album lacks a bit of a direction or an aim to reach the target if ever thre was one.

There are instrumental passages in which nothing happens at all and you keep waiting and waiting for the change or the progress to start. So there comes a moment in which you disconnect and stop looking through the window of your cabin/seat/compartment and produce your book out of your bag to have a little enjoyment. Then something attracts you attention for a while... but hopelessly boredom appears again...

I guess there are reviewers which rate this album much higher and maybe due to the impression it made them when it was released, but time has left its implacable mark on it.

Two and half stars (plus another half as a tip for being Crazy Arthur Brown).
