5 stars I've to admit I wasn't aware of this wonderful album before one or two years ago but I just can confirm what other reviewers wrote already about it. This one and only release by short-living formation Khan featuring Steve Hillage and Dave Stewart had been one of the most pleasant but as well very sophisticated records in the Canterbury style. The six tracks on here are offering a highly versatile and interesting style mix between jazz and hard progressive rock with some classical leanings and a very slight space touch mainly due to Hillage's echoed guitar solos. There are plenty sudden rhythm breaks and frequent shifts from mellow to hard rocking sections. Dave Stewart presented here one of his most energetic and powerful organ work, especially in his solos. What else can I say that hadn't been told yet elsewhere? Actually it's hard to name any highlights since all tracks are equally excellent and I don't see any reason for not giving a full-score rating for this work. I think this unique gem fully deserves to be called a masterpiece of progressive music!!
