3.0 goodRobbit | May 5th 16

The USA only made this one very noncommercial, but innovative album before splitting up. It's not easy to describe their unique sound but they seem to merge the experimentation of the Velvet Underground with the space rock sound effects of Hawkwind, yet also contains a softer pop sensibility not unlike the mellower Jefferson Airplane stuff. Interesting and possibly worth exploring, but not something I'd immediately embrace.

4.5 superbHernan M. Campbell STAFF | July 7th 12

Pretty much helped define the future of Psychedelia. One of the first albums to use electronic effects to create
ambient and chaotic soundscapes. This is a must-hear for any fans of psychedelic music.

Best Track: I Won't Leave My Wooden Wife For You, Sugar
Worst Track: Where Is Yesterday
Just one of those obscure albums you should hear before you die.
