This Album has become one of my personal favorites over the years. It has a unique flaire mostly thanks to the producers determination to go with a solid underlying theme. The instrumentation and songwriting are excellent. Some of the pieces are almost too theatrical, which is the only real critique I have - I wish it picked up speed again towards the End.
This is an Album I would recommend to anyone.

If Amorphous Androgynous were to release an album on Hapna this would be it... One of the year's great psych records, not backward looking either as forward facing as a bow on a ship. I would say see you on the other side, but this has more sides than a Icosidodecahedron so where you and I will end up who knows.
