Brilliant spacey Kosmiche noodling from the unabashed hippies, released right into the maelstrom of Punk. Later Ashra stuff would veer too close to Pink Floyd for my liking, but here they make a thrilling ambient statement with the requisite 70's guitar noodling and moog sound. If Steve Reich made an ambient album, with phasing-meets-improv guitarwork, then it may very well sound like this. I play this all the time, and it comes up fresh every time- always a good pointer. Highly recommended, and an early ambient pathfinder.
