Floor rattling. Stunning album, front-to-back.

I just heard the full and unedited 'Time Has Come Today' ... for the first time. (Yes, I know, late to the party) And let me just say ... Mind = BLOWN! I'm guessing the Kool Aid was flowing strong in the studio, that day. Holy Interstellar Overdrive, Batman!

From the first song to the last, this is a surprising, gorgeous piece of work. Whether one comes to it for the unabashed, aggressive psychedelia of the title track, or for traditional soul ballads like 'Romeo and Juliet,' a listener can't really go away unsatisfied. There is a soulfulness to these vocals that is hard to beat and an innovation of sound that I find hard to compare. One thing is certain: no record collection should be without one.
