AllMusic Review by

Their final LP (now available on CD) is one of the finer unsung psychedelic records of the late '60s. Heavy echoes of Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, Hendrix, and psychedelic-era Pretty Things, with adroit shifts from crunching rock and soft, almost folky passages to spacy phase shift bits and just plain dementia. The album has an ominous and creepy, but rocking, ambience that still cuts deep. The 2001 CD reissue on Pseudonym adds five bonus tracks from late-'60s singles, though a couple of these are just alternate mono or stereo versions.
