5 stars The Soft Machine's high water mark, combining elements of jazz, prog rock, and electronics/tape looping at points as well, there's a looseness to the playing that lends an earthy organic quality to the music as well. Unlike the previous two albums, which are more progressive-oriented, and not as straight jazz as that which came after, Third combines the two styles fluidly and in a truly rare manner. One of the very best albums of progressive rock, fundamental to any prog rock collection.
