AllMusic Review by

One of the less impressive editions of the Rubble series. The entries in the far-out band/song name contest (Bamboo Shoot, Ipsissimus, Edwick Rumbold, "10,000 Years Behind My Mind," "William Chalker's Time Machine") tend to obscure the realization that this is average late '60s rock that's longer on trendiness than inspiration. The best material (by Tomorrow and the Pretty Things) is easily found on those bands' own reissues. Some collectors do gave a high rating to Aquarian Age's "10,00 Words in a Cardboard Box," released by drummer Twink in 1968 as he was making the transition from Tomorrow to the Pretty Things.
