4 stars I recall during may or august 2007 I bought this album, and took it over to a friends house. after engaging in a 'cup of tea' me and another friend sat upon this nice comfortable bed and engaged Gong's You...upon first listen we and my friend Mchael where totaly blown away by how far ahead of it's time it sounded, I was just getting into Gong and exploring further and further into the Canterbury Collective. When the first song began to play (Thoughts For Naught) my friend Michael looked at me with those red soaked eyes that haunt me to this day. he looked at me and laughed as Daevid Allen began to sing and heard the weird structure of it. After experiancing Gong's Flying Teapot & the magnificent Angels' Egg, and Steve Hillage's Fish Rising solo effort, I was sort of dis- satisfried with You, and to be honest most of it has to do with the absent Daevid Allen, the creative force behind Gong, besides that the music is onehundered percent psychedelictrippcanterburystyle. If I had to rate all of Gong's "primary albums" it would be as followed::

1>Angels' Egg 2>Flying Teapot 3>You 4>Cambert Electrique
