Some months after 'After Bathing at Baxter's' - an often great but a bit indulgent acid-bath undermined by studio noodling and other experiments, Jefferson Airplane finally came down to earth...more or less. On this, their fourth album, JA was able to meld their full blown psychedelic sound with their commercial interests, and they put together an LP more like their second- listenable all the way through, with a number of songs that could or should have been hit singles.
Founder folk-rocker Marty Balin, missing in action for most of Baxters's, re-appeared, singing writing or co-writing some great songs. Vocalist Grace Slick, guitarists Paul Kantner and Jorma Kaukonen, bassist Jack Cassidy, and drummer Spence Dryden are all playing and singing better than ever.
Slick's odd and folky Lather- about the growing numbers of brain or otherwise damaged American youth?- and her meatier sounding Greasy Heart have her typically literate and surreal lyrics. On the group's tasteful arrangement of Triad ( David Crosby's folk-jazz ballad about free love and polygamy ) Grace's voice is controlled and expressive, and shows how good a singer she really was. And the first side of the original LP, opening with Lather, has a more mellow feel and works nicely as a chill-out antidote to what came next- the subsequent songs and lyrics are heavier stuff.
That side starts off happily enough with Balin's ode to freedom, If You Feel, fading in on little wah wah guitar licks, bouyed by Jack Cassidy's fluid electric bass. Next comes the title tune, Paul Kantner's blend of apocalyptic sci-fi and a youth revolution call to arms. The Jorma Kaukonen penned and sung Ice Cream Phoneix calms things down only a shade.

This is an unmissable album for all Airplane die-hards, along with Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing at Baxters, Bless its Pointed Little Head and Volunteers, all of which are five-star albums. After that things started to go downhill, though the Kantner/Slick productions like Blows Against the Empire, Sunfighter and Baron von Tollbooth are well worth looking at. Stand-out tracks are Lather, Triad, If You Feel Like China Breaking and Crown of Creation. Even if you are not an Airplane fanatic, this album can also be recommended if you are looking at for an authentic taste of that sixties West Coast/San Francisco sound. In fact, Crown of Creation is an all-time classic!

It is what it says. Along with After Bathing at Baxter's this is truly the highest achievement of the human race. And this album doesn't sound dated at all. For anyone who wants a bit more. Great songs from everyone, Jorma's guitar is at its searing best, Jack puts most jazzos to shame. Words are superfluous. Highlights for me: Lather, In time, Share a little joke, If you feel, Greasy Heart. Spencer Dryden, an experienced jazz drummer lends to the unique feel of the music - it's rarely a straightforward rock approach; bass player Jack Casady, the best musician who ever played in a rock band is delicious all through this; Jorma Kaukonen - on acoustic guitar he's been described as John Renbourn and Bert Jansch rolled into one and these days (2007)he's more respected than ever - by the time of this album he was well on top of electric guitar and producing excitement easily to match Hendrix or Clapton; and three distinct and original singer songwriters in Paul Kantner, Marty Balin and Grace Slick - Marty and Grace being universally recognised as each being among the finest singers ever - it's worth saying again: few bands ever had one singer as good as Marty or Grace, no other band ever had 2! Imagine the Pentangle meets the Jimi Hendrix experience meets the Mamas and the Papas! They had their share of hit singles over the years but didn't have as many instantly catchy songs as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who or the Doors but when it all came together they flew higher than anyone!

Press ganged into listening to this album in my college days in 68 and I have never regretted it. Each listening always leaves me feeling privileged to hear such a masterful piece of musical brilliance. Bristling with top notch musicians and superb songwriters I would not expect anything less than a memorable album. I must confess it did take several listens for me to appreciate how good this album is. Following on from the very excellent but different After Bathing at Baxters was not going to be easy but the Airplane achieved it with consummate ease.

This is down to the individual and distinctive contributions by each of the band. In Time, If you feel like china breaking, Triad, Share a little joke Greasy Heart are just wondrous. But all the tracks are divine except for the brief instrumental at the end of side one.

In my opinion the finest album of the 1960s and second only(just) to War Babies as my overall number one.
