3 stars Another fine album from Gilgamesh.

This sadly ignored band included the likes of Hugh Hopper (released from Soft Machine) and Alan Gowen. Both was sadly taken away from us far too early. Alan Gowen's excellent contributions to this album just reminds me how much this world misses him. Check out his fabelous playing on Play Time and you will get my point. Alan Gowen was more or less the leader of Gilgamesh. He was also the leader of National Health. Those who knows National Health should really purchase all Gilgamesh album. The music here is pretty similar to National Health......... with a couple of differences. This album is much more keyboards focused and laid back than the first two National Health albums. Gilgamesh is much more jazz than jazz-rock. They are also much more jazz than National Health, Hatfield & The North and Soft Machine.

Play Time is an excellent track. So is Bobberty. The rest of the material here is good, but sadly a bit anonymous. This is not rock. This is silent contemplation. This is a good album, but nothing more than that. I still rate Gilgamesh very highly and will listen a lot to this album during the next decades.
