5 stars I'd like to point out certain aspects of this album that make it rise above almost all others in its genre in rockandroll history, 1st: this is a psychadelic album that probably requires the use of hallucingens to truly appreciate all the nuances on the album, 2nd: when it was an album only product, those of us of certain age remember those days, what was great about it was that you could put on a side of the lp and space out to it and if you weren't quick enough to get up and change the side, the music of 666 was so densely ahead of it's time that you could listen to each side over and over again and find new things that would jump out at you each time, the final track ALL THE SEATS WERE OCCUPPIED, epitomizes this. This is a track that encompasses cool spacey and ethnic intrumentation, a lot of dub experimentation, and the way that all the pieces come together around the steady drumbeats towards a primeaval conclusion, there was one night in particular back in my college days, that we sat back and must have listened to that side of the album at least a dozen times in row! I still think it is that good a track that I can listen to it and find new things to admire each time out, I glad that this album has had so many reviews on this blog, it deserves. 666 is still one of my top ten desert island classics. I would recommend starting from ALL THE SEATS WERE OCCUPPIED and working your way backwards through the album to appreciate what I'm talking about. 5 stars absolutely, one of the reasons the cd format was created to preserve the genius of albums like this for other generations to discover and admire.
