This is one of those Free-Jazz albums I can only listen to when I'm in a certain mood. I don't 100% like it but I listen to mainly because it's Sun Ra and it represents a good point in Impulse's history. I think.
The title track is a great 21+ minute piece featuring a large barrage of different instruments happening at once. It settles for a bit and then kicks up again. This occurs about 3 times during the track. The think I like most about is Sun Ra's own Organ play, making the high pitched "Space Laser" sounds. It just puts you more into the mood. The other 4 tracks are fairly different. Images could have been pulled of a Coltrane album and most wouldn't have notice. I personally love how this album ends with the track Rocket Number Nine. An awesome short piece that take you back home. It sounds a bit comical too.
I am very picky when it comes to free-jazz and although I don't like this album as much as some others on Impulse it always gets played simply cause it was a personal turning point in my jazz collection.
