I Remember This One

Ok. I went to University in Canterbury right around when this album was released. As a new entry in the new genre of fusion, it was eye opening. I went to a Softs concert at the University of Kent at Canterbury, and was blown away. There was this new shocking guitar player who played like no one I had ever heard and it was Allan Holdsworth. But soon the band changed: the Sinclair brothers were both gone, and Holdsworth was off making an album with Gong. This is a wonderul transitional album. The essence of the drugged out jams of Soft Machine 3 are still there with Mr. Sinclair. There is the addition of a guitar player who can keep up and, yea, add to it in Holdsworth. And there is a structured rhythmn behind it all.

Lovers of Softs 3 with like Hazard Profile 5 and The Floating World. Lovers of fusion will like Hazard Profile 1 and Bundles.

Ratings: First Hearing (a long time ago - 5 out of 5). Staying power (a long time ago) 5 out of 5 - I listend to this album until my brother stole it. Long term - not sure yet - I have been aching to have this album back and now have downloaded it. I'm anxious to know if it still resonates like it did when I was 19 and 20.

At their best

great!, glad iTunes had it
