A Collage Of Sound @ Color For All Those Wanting To Get Int
Original Mixed Up-Kid | New York United States | 03/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Soft Machine left a legacy, this innovative talented 60's UK band were totally unnventional,rocked,jazzed,sang all in a totally creative fashion not comparable to any in a class all their own.
Yet there is beauty and total structure..Art and music meet.
This CD is a bargain fusing their 1st 2 albums with glorious sound and original artwork intact.
Vol 1 1s easier to grasp than Vol 2 and by Vol.3 the Softs were known to most achieving critical acclaim.
Also check out the 2 CD sets of their BBC Recordings for a taste of this exciting era."
Every Time is the First Time
David J. Horn | Atlanta, Georgia | 02/10/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These two recordings are absolutely jaw dropping in terms of originality, youthful joy and musicianship. This is psychedelic rock, leavened with jazz, but infused with an exhuberant love of the pop idom. This may sound an impossible combination, but the Soft Machine manages to pull it off, song after song. Indeed, these songs fly into one another with a daffy coherence; and like Zappa, whole albums have been created by other [lesser!]groups based upon a single musical idea thrown off herein. Buy this album, and let it take over your ears, and excite your mind. It is that good. I listen to these two recordings over and over again, and each and every time, it seems like the very first time. Mind blowing music."
