4 stars How do you classify an album like this ? It's Psychedelic, Canterbury, Space and Jazz with a lot of humour. A lot of weird and silly songs (i'm sure they all have their purpose) in this second installment of the trilogy. This is certainly a diverse album, more of a focus on the songs then on the longer instrumentals like the follow up "You".

Steve Hillage seems to have his hands tied, that is until he breaks loose on "I Never Glid Before" which is amazing ! The opener "The Other Side Of The Sky" is a great jamming, spacey song, a perfect way to start. "Flute Salade" and "Oily Way" go great together, another highlight. "Inner Temple" features some amazing sax playing.

If you want to check out the legendary GONG you can't go wrong in checking out any of the Trilogy albums.
