I still have the book and records and have now added the CD. Yes it is much better to view Woodroffe's art through the book but the music can take you where you've never been - if you want to go - but getting the book would be a real plus. Overall they are some tracks that are fair, some that are good and others you'll never forget, like Greenslade's daugther doing the vocals in Nursery Hymn. For those who already have the book and records the CD is a must to add to your collection for others it's an interesting step into another place, another time.
The music howere is a curate's egg. Good in parts. Those parts that are not so good, luckily are smaller than the better pieces.
Greenslade came via Collosseum, forming his own band then vanished. This is certainly worth getting BUT....yes you knew it was comming. There is always a BUT. I would suggest that if you get this then try as hard as you can to get a vinyl version. The book illustrations are fantastic. A CD booklet would not do them justice.
You could accuse Greenslade of being over pretentious on this album and creating noodly, electronic music of a dubious nature.
Definatly worth the money, if for the book alone.
It makes a great companion to the CD version, and ignore the one review posted, it has nothing to do with the Biblical Pentateuch
I bought the vinyl edition way back in 1980 something and only thought to search for the CD version a couple of weeks ago. This is the album for anyone who loves great instrumentals and quirky art. The story book is a little difficult to read due to the tiny print but this is a small thing (no pun intended) as the music and art far exceed expectations. I was instantly thrown back to the 80s as soon as the first track started.
The music follows a great story line of creation and destruction of a planet and the mood is powerful.
I strongly recommend this album to be enjoyed and savoured for what it is, A WORK OF ART.............

It's great for what it is. Does bring back memories. To bad the nice inside booklet is unattached at this digipack .Published 7 months ago by monsignor B.
Pay attention everyone - this is what a concept album looks and sounds like. I bought the original on vinyl years ago - so was very pleased to track down this CD version.Published on April 9, 2013 by Dave
A classic of early synth programming. Dave Greenslade helped, with this and his work with his band, pave the way for much of what we hear now in keyboard sound creation. Read morePublished on October 26, 2005 by Kelsey Coutts
Yes, I cant believe, that this piece is still existing. I bought the double vinyl LP set many years ago. Read morePublished on October 25, 2002 by Hufurrhufur
In the beginning there was less than void, and not before there was a void did things begin, for things do require a void just as fish require water in which to swim... Read morePublished on June 25, 2001 by Ildrinn
