This is a gorgeous 1973 CTI original Pressing (VAN GELDER stamps in the dead wax) with excellent sound and quiet vinyl. I pick these up whenever I see them as it's a favorite album of mine to turn friends on to. This is one of the nicer copies I've seen -- cover and vinyl are gorgeous -- and it sounds so good that I figured I'd throw it up here and see if someone wanted to take it for a spin. Farrell is joined here by a killer line-up that includes Herbie Hancock, Stanley Clarke and Jack DeJohnette. If you enjoy the funky CTI vibe, I imagine you might fall hard for this one. It's a ton of fun. And if you're a Phish fan, the opening riff of the album is certain to bring a smile to your face -- it's basically Martian Monster!
4 stars Allmusic: "This is sci-fi Farrell at his creative best."
