"Tomorrow was a better-than-average sixties psychedelic band who had some inkling of how to use the recording studio to make interesting records. "My White Bicycle" remains a classic, with its dazzling use of backwards guitar and drum sounds. "Revolution" (not the same as the Beatles song of the same name) is also a fun one, with its many surprising tape edits (a la "Good Vibrations" on speed!). Speaking of the Beatles, Tomorrow's rocked-up version of "Strawberry Fields Forever" is actually quite listenable, and not the travesty one might expect. Their overall sound of luscious fender guitar slurps, crazy stereo panning, and whimsical lyrics with front-and-center vocals make this a good period piece. What the album lacks are memorable melodies; if there were some, this would be a great album indeed."
Tomorrow - self-titled (EMI) import CD

"It's been noted that this sole 1968 record by the short-lived UK psych band was one of the best lp's of that era as well as it's always been highly under-rated.I would tend to agree with that opinion.This reissue of the Tomorrow record is really quite nice,with the lp's eleven tracks along with twelve bonus tunes tagged on for good measure.A total of 23 songs.Wow!A truly great psychedelic release to own.The disc's gems are easy to spot,like "My White Bicycle"(the same tune Nazareth opens some of their gigs with),the timeless "Revolution","Three Jolly Little Dwarfs" and "Hallucinations".Most of you probably,of course know about Tomorrow's line-up.That it included guitarist Steve Howe(before he joined Yes),heart-throb Keith West on vocals and drummer Twink before he joined up with the Pink Fairies.Sort of a historic record,one COULD say.The extra tunes are about as good as the actual lp.Sort of dug "Why" and the mono version of the previously mentioned "Revolution" as well as the three cuts by The Aquarian Age,a side project by Twink and the band's bassist,Junior.Thought the spoken word track,skit,whatever... "Good Wizard Meets Naughty Wizard" was a gas.To end things,there are four decent Keith West solo tracks.Comes with a beautifully-designed 12-page booklet with PLENTY of cool photos,artwork and info.A must have."
Good Psych Album, Great Singles

"This album is very well done and worth owning for any fans of 60's Psych out there. The instrumentation is often very psych tinged, and the singer does a great job throughout the record. It's definetly in the vein of the Blossom Toes or early/mid Pink Floyd stuff.
The "singles" on the record, (especially My White Bicycle and the stuff by the Aquarian Age), are very memorable and make this record worth purchasing alone."
