Right from the opening track, with a keyboard intro, you know this is a Soft Machine related album. This opening track, Burden of Proof, sounds very much the Karl Jenkins era Softs, with a marching, repetitive rhythm allowing Theo Travis and John Etheridge to play off each other. On the second track, an anthenic open gives way to what sounds like improvised passages with ethereal flute riffs and harsh guitar riffs giving it more than a hint of 1970s avant-garde soundtracks. Every track is different - Pie Chart is a more traditional bluesy sounding track with a languid pace. Black and Crimson starts off with a familiar keyboard sound, and this continues while Etheridge plays some wonderful guitar melodies. It's fresh and lively, yet is cleary Soft Machine.

I think this is probably my favourite Soft Machine Legacy album.

Though I have enjoyed the previous Soft Machine Legacy albums this is the first that can stand next to the albums of Soft Machine as an equal; it is certainly as good as any of the albums with names (Bundlesand beyond) yes even Bundles!

The band now consists of John Etheridge: electric guitar, Roy Babbington: bass guitar, John Marshall: drums and percussion and
Theo Travis: tenor sax, flute, fender rhodes piano, and although Marshall and Babbington both have places at the heart of some of Soft Machines classic albums and Etheridge was rather brilliant on Softs and brought the highlights to Alive And Well Recorded In Paris it is the presence of Travis who lifts this band to its new heights.

Like all the Soft Machine Legacy albums this is recorded live, giving it an open feel. There is a cracking version of Kings and Queens, a number that was recorded by Soft Machine on Fourth. Perhaps this band would achieve even greater things if studio time was available/affordable to them but I will be content with this, a great addition to my Canterbury Scene.

As the title suggests - this is by 'Soft Machine Legacy' as opposed to being an original Soft Machine release.

Notwithstanding that - if you like Soft Machine - you'll love this.
