Most reviewers seem to prefer this album to their self titled debut but although it's pretty darn good i still prefer the original. This may of course be the fact i bought the original on it's release whereas i've only just purchased this one recently. The rose tinted glasses syndrome?
The writer of the sleeve-notes, Malcolm Dome, states they have taken a harder/heavier route on this album and cites "echoes of Deep Purple" in the rockier guitar playing. It's a fair comment, up to a point. They've definitely toned down the prog-rock showcased on their debut but it's still (thankfully) evident on a lot of the tracks e.g in 'Brainstorm'(with some lovely Yes Fragile-era guitar sounding flourishes) and on both 'Pan' (with the VCS3 making a welcome appearance) & the epic closer 'Monolith'.
It opens with the very catchy & rocky 'Spaceship' but the sometimes flat/off-key vocal spoiled the song for me. As well as the other tracks already mentioned there are also a couple of nice ballads and the guitar work throughout is excellent.
The 3 bonus tracks (issued as singles back in the day) are more interesting than vital. 'Gay Time Night' is very poppy and hasn't aged well and reminded me of Chicory Tip and that leaves 2 versions of Sabre Dance. The first is a fairly standard version (highlighting the great guitars) and the second version is more of a remix and probably the better version.
It's a mystery why they didn't become a more well known band but that doesn't take away from the fact this is a fine album.

After their debut produced by Greg Lake, the band decided to go it alone with their second and last album, and a pretty good job they made of it too. It is a varied collection of styles, starting off with a track that could have come from 1969, sounding as it does a bit like Andromeda. That's the great track 'Spaceship', the only track that made it onto any prog or psych compilation I have, the Harvest compilation 'A Breath Of Fresh Air' as well as the psych-prog comp 'A Visit To The Spaceship Factory'. On a few tracks they get pretty progressive with intricate dual lead guitar, bass and drum parts. There are some early synthesizer sounds too on a couple of tracks, much like Jon Lord was using around 1974 on Deep Purple albums. A couple of the rockier tracks on the other hand remind me a bit of Mouse, also from around the same time. All in all, some great guitar playing here with pretty good vocals, on some tracks I think the drums could have been mixed a bit louder, but overall this is an album deserving of the mighty Harvest Label.
