“Most would probably agree that this is one of the very best psych-style LPs from the 1980s. Not retro at all but (like Bobb Trimble) a piece of the late 1960s preserved from time’s rust.
Male/female vocals lament and serenade the quest for knowledge of love and beauty in an appealing soundscape, with lyrical guitar leads throughout, good use of mellotron, occasional tablas, flute and bells.

 

The recording has a definite 1981 sound but (again, like Bobb Trimble) this somehow becomes an advantage. There’s not a questionable song on this album, recommended to anyone open for a soft, dreamy trip inside the melancholy and bliss of an acid-tinted romance.” (The Acid Archives).

 

High-quality reissue in 180g vinyl, nice carton with original artwork, unbeatable remastered sound quality and also including the huge 16-paged booklet with lyrics and drawings.
500 copies limited release.
