    Bursting with in-the-moment vitality, it applies a neon topcoat to Gong’s long-established ley lines.

    This is a fine album which continues to plough the Gong furrow with seasoned aplomb.

    Whether the new album will get them anywhere close to the mainstream remains to be seen. Most likely it won’t, but that doesn’t mean we can’t root for them all the same.

    Gong have become their own tribute band. But it works. [Nov 2016, p.107]
