2 stars Eclectic. That's the best way to describe the debut album by the totem British band. The album is a sequence of themes of a very different texture and format, in mid-slow tempo. Instruments, backgrounds, tempos vary from one track to the next. Even if there are no brilliant themes that may stand by themselves, the sequence is pleasant. It seems a recompilation of early tapes, thus I doubt the sequence keeps any conceptual purpose. Thus, I would say this is easy audible music, kind of ambient, of the type you want to listen without paying much attention to it, in a Floydian style. There are very few elements of interest, and little innovation if any. That means you can't expect any masterpieces, great riffs, or instrument virtuosos. The tracks are introspective ideas coming out from Wilson's restless pot in his beginnings. Radioactive Toy is a 10 min composition that deserves a couple of spins, but Nine Cats is my favorite track of the album, probably the only adult piece. My copy is a bit short of lows, don't know if made on purpose or it was a deficient recording, but can be equalized easily.
