A true rare find gem !

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is one of those "category by itself" leagues... hard to describe, inimitable, genre defying... yet such an other worldly listening experience it just takes you into another world. - - I will say though, in some ways it reminds me of the Chicago Transit Authorities first album... very grooving... very conceptual... great rock, yet a mixed bag of influences... definitely something new (at the time) and again... an album that is a world to its own...

So how can this album be described... Well... The Mod and Progressive rock of the era is there... but that's only a backbone... at times the band jams out in a psychedelic manner... there are funky influences, southern rock, riff rock (like Humble pie) - - however, the album is interesting because the tunes can drift from one vibe to another in a way that creates the "other worldly" sense, yet is also coherent... All in all, the type of album that you don't just listen to for one song, but straight through. (*more often than not, most likely under substance influence.) - - Its also a "musicians'" album, but not in the show off sense, just that so much is happening on a musical level (hard to describe, but if you've heard the album it becomes clear.) Sometimes things, in fact seem to happen out of the clear blue... but again, as I said, fit into the picture... like you might be hearing a wild rock guitar solo one minute, a Jazzy sax solo the next - - a baroque type theme the next... and hard rock the next. (O.K. Pink Floyd and Led Zep are coming to mind.) Overall though, I will repeat it over and over again... this album is definitely a trip that has so much happening repeated listens will only seem sensible... and you may very well find yourself listening to it and enjoying it just as much, even 20 years from now... Put simply: GET IT..."
