    11.5/12

    The first 15 seconds of the album is iconic to the 60s. It perfectly sets up a psychedelic 60s rock album.

    “She Has Funny Cars” sets the stage, “Somebody to Love” and “My Best Friend” are notable psychedelic pop songs, and “Today” really establishes the mellow psychedelic vibe. This tone continues into “Comin’ Back to Me”, adding more of a folk element to it. “3/5 of a Me in 10 Seconds” returns to the upbeat psychedelic rock sound, but this time with a surf or beach element to it. The next two songs are optimistic psychedelic pop songs. “Embryonic Journey” is a nice instrumental bridge into the grand opus for the band. “White Rabbit” is a tremendous and iconic song in the psychedelic rock genre and is overall a masterpiece. I also love that it is about “Alice in Wonderland”, which ties the psychedelic and surreal elements back into the album, as well as earning brownie points, being a narrative song. “Plastic Fantastic Lover” circles back with the same iconic psychedelic 60s sound as the opening track. It really stamps the album as a product of its time and feels straight out of the Vietnam war.

    Overall, this album was much better than I remember when I listened the first time. It varies between psychedelic rock and pop and really has a tremendous sound to it. Many of the songs are bangers as well. And having “White Rabbit” is a major plus.

    Bangers: “White Rabbit”, “Somebody to Love”, “My Best Friend”, “Today”, “Comin’ Back to Me”, and “Plastic Fantastic Lover”

    The poster is solid. There’s a nice shot of the band and the purple colors fit well. I just wish there was more psychedelic elements to the cover.

        I'm looking forward to the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab 2 x LP, 45 RPM, Mono reissue/remaster. Should be a good one!
        • Absolute psychedelic brilliance!
          Listen to this album, if only for the insane bass and vocals of White Rabbit.

            I have just picked up a copy but can't find anything about it anywhere. It is a Simply Vinyl marked as SVLP0059 on the sleeve. The back is labelled with BMG and RCA. It has the barcode: 643346005911 Anyone any ideas on the validity of this?
