5.0 out of 5 stars Let's talk to the Trees again! 9 Mar 2007
By Dr. D. B. Sillars VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
For many the underlying memory of this album is the yucky green vinyl of the original LP release. Oh the days of novelty vinyl! However what was contained in the grooves was Steve Hillage at his space rock best. After the more song orientated "Motivation Radio", with "Green" Hillage allowed himself to stretch out instrumentally. Plenty of his trademark soaring guitar playing and lots and lots of synths. The album was beautifully produced by Pink Floyd's Nick Mason, who also added "echo drums" to "Leylines in Glassdom", though the CD notes fail to mention this. I actually think that in time Nick Mason will be better remembered in the annals of rock for his work in the production seat rather than the drum stool. Just listen to Robert Wyatt's "Rock Bottom"!

"Green" starts with the wonderfully rich "Sea Nature". This was recently given a sterling cover by German prog band RPWL. The use of sequencers and synths throughout is a clear pointer to Hillage's future work as the techno outfit System 7. But Hillage was always aware of what musically was happening around him. The following album "Open" showed clear new wave influences. "Sea Nature" flows effortlessly into the dreamy "Ether Ships". I love the way this builds up over the bubbling sequencers. Not until near the end does Andy Anderson's cascading drums come in to lead Hillage's guitar off into the fade out. Then onto the languid "Musick of the Trees". This is hazy, easy going, summertime stuff. As is the lovely "Palm Trees (Live Guitar)", which is Hillage's simplest love song and features another in his long line of gorgeous guitar solos. There is a laid back, organic feel to the album as a whole which suits the eco-aware lyrical themes presented.

Steve Hillage really is an under-rated artist. On first play, this album like Fish Rising, can have you putting it at the back of your collection never to be played again. You feel there is something special their that Hillage just missed. A good example being the first track which starts so strongly, then seems to lose itself in a very weak melody.
Keep playing and suddenly it dawns on you just how great a guitarist and how clever the tracks really are. Ether Ships and Palm Trees (love guitar) have you wishing they were longer.
Green is an album you can put on continuous play and not get bored or irritated. Turn the lights off and sit back and it is almost like a different album, all the subtleties coming to the fore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Magick" album re-mastered to perfection... 24 Mar 2007
By DSR VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of all Steve Hillage's wonderful solo albums, this one holds a very special place in my heart, along with "And Not Or/For To Next," which, despite the use of drum machines, has some wonderful songs and playing.

To me, this is a very personal album, the ecological concept way before its time in the broader world meaning far more now than then I think.

The music in many ways continues to develop the feel of the slightly earlier "Motivation Radio," Steve, Miquette and band trying their best to lift the listener into a higher, more aware and happier frame of mind. Despite the Punk explosion at this time, there were enough of the "Post Hippy" generation like me around to enjoy the music and the spectacular playing contained within Steve's albums has more than stood the test of time, sounding fresher than ever now I can more easily hear what was going on deep in the mix.

The original LP and CD release of this one was always very good indeed, to be fair. Indeed, Steve himself mastered the first CD issue. This re-mastering has subtly improved the ease in which the deepest layers of the mix can be enjoyed and this release, compared to the original, should be a good comparison of how good early CD releases of '70's material can be and how much more subtle modern technology can make them...

The music here has always been truly sublime in its beauty. The musicianship on 'Hillage albums was always of the highest order and there seems an air of happiness that spreads across all of his releases, continuing unabated into his System 7 work too... The bonus tracks are well worth having too, showing how good Steve was and still is as a live performer.

If you haven't got a Steve Hillage CD in your collection, I'd strongly recommend this one. The music is sublime in its purity and sincerity and time, if anything, has enhanced it.

SINCERELY RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars 20 years on and still in my top 10 21 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After being introduced to this album on a very stoned afternoon it has remained one of my all time favourite albums. Without a dought Hillage at his best. Not too hippy. Not too electronic. Just right. The feel of the album is not lost at any time and flows from one track to the next. Highlights must be palm trees and unidentified

5.0 out of 5 stars Hillage's Classic 21 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Steve Hillage was noted for his fluid, spacey guitar work and stellar live performances. He was also pretty funky and it's perhaps no surprise that with System 7 he has settled into a techno dance groove. You don't have to look too hard to find the roots of his modern sound here. Plenty of hypnotic beats and synth phrasing combine with incredible guitar work and fantastic playing from the whole ensemble make this, to my mind, the greatest ever truly prog album. But it's so much more. When Hillage fans get together, this is the album they cite as the masterwork - with the closer, The Glorious Om Riff taking first prize as the soundtrack for setting the controls for the heart of the sun and holding on for the ride of your life. Awesome.
