5 stars I rate this album an overall masterpiece of guitar work, and the icing on it is the solo at the end of the Beatles cover, "It's All Too Much" This solo ranks, in my opinion, as one of most blistering and melodic of any guitar player and belies more than Hillage's technical mastery of the instrument, with his astoundingly unique style. The solo also reveals an incredible amount of heart and soul that resounds throughout. ( This is something Todd Rundgren - L's producer - has never quite been able to convey in his own, technically brilliant, guitar solos) In all of Hillage's work, this solo alone would instantiate Him as a "lead guitar player's guitar player" on par with all the guitar greats. Any aspiring guitarist should listen to this one.
