3 stars This album is relatively up and down. There are many good tracks, some ok tracks, and a few really bad tracks. This album in my opinion is mostly folk/psychedelic based music and at times their is touches of jazz fusion. The guitar and synth take turns as lead instruments and the keys and vocals create some interesting atmospheres.

Things I like about the album are the strong rhythm section which carries through the album quite well, the guitar solos are also quite nice. Jazz Fusion tracks like "Do it" and "The Battle of the locust" are very nice as are Altamont and the Wedding lamb/the wedding lamb which go from jazzy to psychedelic when the keyboard takes the front.

Things I don't liek: The album is overdivided at times. Songs like Altamont/wedding of the lamb didn't need to be broken up. Some of the very short songs are relatively worthless ie Ofis, seven trumpets, and the system. The vocals at times can be annoying like the orgasmic like thing occurring in Infinity and the spoken word sections in the seventh seal, the cult sounding mantra in seven bowls, or the intros like "now... comes...the capturing of the beast".

So overall worth checking out but not necessarilly essential.
