TOP 500 REVIEWERon 2 September 2013
Soft Machine have been around since the mid-60's, undergone numerous line-up changes but always excited devoted interest with their adventurous improvisation and compositional style. Age has not withered them. What might have been a tired old re-hash of former glories is actually an album that sparks with life and invention. From angry heavy power chords to free-form sax soloing and on occasion McLaughlin like guitar runs this set has it all and more. Strangely the band never sound self- indulgent, they are too alive to each other. This is a band, despite their 'advanced' age (as if that were any real barrier!) is as capable, inspired (not to say, wild!) and enthusiastic as could be imagined. Listen to John Marshall's drum solo if proof were needed. First class playing, some great tunes and nifty recorded sound make this a release to savour.

Recommended.

Four old geezers, great interaction, wonderful live music. When people tell you jazz has no future, sit them down and blast this at them. What a wonderful send-off to Elton - fade away and radiate!
