This is Allen's first solo album which he recorded years after leaving the legendary Soft Machine and soon after forming the anarchic, experimental and drug-inspired ensemble Gong. The album's highlights include the moody 'Memories' with Robert Wyatt on vocals, one of the finest tracks to come out of the so-called 'Canterbury Sound', and the rocking opener 'Time Of Your Life' is a showcase for Allen's guitar pyrotechnics. The attractive digipak packaging of this re-isse faithfully reproduces the original artwork and includes Allen's own distinctive, suitable stoned notes and drawings, plus an authoritative updated commentary. Snapper. 2005.
Great Music, Poor Sound

"This is an outstanding Daevid Allen album. Too bad the remastering of the original tapes didn't get the attention deserved. The album sounds as if muted. No amount of fiddling with your stereo's settings can compensate for Snap's poor re-recording of this classic. And that's really a shame. Every song on this disc is first-class. If you're a Gong/Daevid Allen fan you need this album in your collection. My advice, find it on vinyl on eBay. The sound will be light-years better than this reissue."
