Beautifully constructed album. As far as the cohesiveness of it as a whole, it may be the best. It's really weird for an album as deep and complex as this one can also have great hooks. Love it!

I remember seeing or reading about this album on this site years ago, back when I used to frequent this site, and whoever recommended it, major thanks! It's a fantastic overlooked gem from the 60's. The songs are weird and psychedelic but they are also melodic and catchy. This stuff is right up my alley and this album has staying power. Highly recommended.

Amazing album, really great songs, it has a great instrumentation, and full of beautiful lyrics, without forgetting the colorful themes that could color all the ears until today

The montage at the end that draws in all the previous tracks is sublime.

Underrated gem that is for sure, the amazing atmospheric textures it is crafted among create a particular sound when mixed with the bizarre arrangements and the uncharacteristic sounds in order to become something trully original, the only thing I would argue is that the album is stronger when it has female vocals as they just meld perfectly with the mood it has been established since the beginning...
