Jomambo particularly loves this album! Gong’s founder Daevid Allen was gone & had no input into this release, so it has none of the hippy fantasy eccentricities of the previous albums. However, it still has a generally progressive rock influenced approach (especially with regards to Steve Hillage’s guitar work), slowly drifting into a jazz fusion sound. It is usually regarded as a transitional album between Daevid Allen’s incarnation of the band and the Pierre Moerlen-led fusion lineup of the late 1970s. “Shamal” was produced by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason.

A French band that started out doing Soft Machine covers but evolved into an avant-prog/zeuhl outfit. Something like this just can’t be ignored by lovers of Progressive Rock or Jazz Fusion. Long jams with somber humor and darkness in the chords. Moody. Reminiscent of other French groups of the era, such as Zao, Moving Gelatine Plates and Potemkine. Click the cover to experience it.
