As someone who appreciates experimental and pop music equally, I have to say that this album features the best of each. Songs like Godstar and Just Like Arcadia are great pop (in the context of Psychic TV) songs, while A Mind Blown Is a Mind Throne and Abstract Reality showcase the band's avant garde sensibilities. Instead of the album feeling schizophrenic, it actually fits together somehow, offering variation rather than incoherence. The more experimental songs are by no means unlistenable or boring; on the contrary they are the most rewarding in my opinion. The cover songs add a period feel while touches such as P-Orridge's spoken word during the climax of Good Vibrations remind you that this is from the man who was once called a "wrecker of civilization".
The liner notes are a real treat. The essay by P-Orridge gives a lot of information, not just on the making of these songs but also on the history of his fascination with Brian Jones.
The more I listen to these disks, the more I wish Psychic TV's early albums were still in print. Thankfully, we have this.
