4 stars A rare Canterbury classic from 1975: Begins with a guitar driven intro Sol Caliente, later named Lagrima on Phil Manzanera's solo album Diamond Head, which was being recorded at the same time as Mainstream. This album has more of a rockish feeling compaired to other Canterbury bands that use more of a Jazzy feeling, but like most Canterbury bands Quiet Sun has long psychedelic jams that are mostly intrumental and bleed into each other, fueled by the Canterbury trademark Organ solo's, spaced guitars... Extremely recomended for progheads and potheads, especially those who are into the whole canterbury/psychedelic scene.
