5.0 out of 5 stars Essential psych from overlooked band, 17 Nov 2008

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tangerine Dream (Audio CD)
Perhaps this came out just a little too late to catch the summer of love in 1967 - an August release might have seen this group up there with the best of them. Instead, it came out towards the year's end, and times were already changing (again).

Still. It's fabulous. A wonderful slice of 60s psych pop that could not have come from any other year. The single, the brilliantly ringing guitars of Flight from Ashiya, might be familiar, since it's been compiled many times. Equally great is Dive into Yesterday, with some wonderfully offbeat lyrics.

Not every track has worn well; Holidaymaker sounds a little ordinary, and the spoken A Lesson Perhaps doesn't bear too many repeated plays. But it runs into the album's best track, The Sky Children, a relentless musical fairy tale that recalls Donovan as his trippiest (think Legend of a Girl Child Linda).

This is a band that has gained fans through the years, and with very good reason. If you haven't discovered them yet, now is the time!
