4 stars First album of really Moerlen's Gong. If six early albums from Gong were Daevid Allen's ,with Canterbury sound ,full of freaky psychedelia, seventh "Shamal" ( without Allen and Gilli Smyth) was something in transition, "Gazeuse" is first real Moerlen's Gong album. The music there is jazz-fusion of highest level!

Very complex,with large percussion/drums section, new line-up includes great guitarist Alan Holdsworth as well. No traces of psychedelia of early years, just very dynamic jazz-rock.

I think, many of early Gong lovers could be mistaken by this album. It's musical direction is so different, that in fact it is just another band ( line-up is almost new as well). But for jazz fusion lovers this recording is one of the best evidence from that time.

Should be presented in every jazz fusion fan collection!
