Great Canterbury prog, and the one Canterbury band closest to traditional prog, for those who are put off by the more pop-leanings of Caravan or the more experimental leanings of Egg (I am not putting down those groups, because some of my Canterbury favorites are from them). This was basically Steve Hillage and Dave Stewart with bassist Nick Greenwood, and drummer Eric Peachy. Vocals are handled by both Hillage and Greenwood. Greenwood tends to have more of that hard-rock vocals, while Hillage didn't. You won't get that Gong-type of spaciness, but you will get more nice keyboard work from Dave Stewart, giving us tons of that fuzzed organ. There is a heavier element to this, there is a hard rock influence, particularly through the guitar riffs, which seems strange for a Canterbury album, and particularly Hillage himself. But there's also plenty of creative passages, including jazzy ones, showing Hillage can alternate between heavy guitar riffing to more jazzy guitar playing. There is one section of the title track that features some lead guitar in the style Hillage would explore much further in Gong and his solo albums. Hillage's voice sounds much the same as on his solo albums (he didn't appear to sing on those Gong albums, probably since Daevid Allen did instead). This is a great album, and I'd even go as far as saying that I can recommend it even if the Canterbury scene isn't your thing, but you love prog rock in general.
