This is hands down one of the absolute greatest Helios Creed records of all time. It's actually my personal favorite. Z Sylver is brought in to provide some really nice synthesizer here and the layers of Helios guitar is just pure insanity. Also, Paul Della Pelle is heard for the first time with his hard hitting powerful drumming, he would continue to play for Helios for many years to come. Some great samples here, including one of George Bush Sr. on a rant against drugs in Flying Through The Either launching nicely into to the fuzzed out Ub The Wall. This album is almost like some sort of weird sci-fi, alien invasion, wasteland meltdown or something, that says a lot but it's the best I can describe it in words. Martian Sperm & Bagpipes has got to be one of the greatest fucked up tracks ever written in Helios arsenal of psychedelic madness!
