I say so because I can't think of any other album in which this quality of musicianship is submitted to the task of such inspired lunacy.

Steve Hillage rocketing into space on guitar; Pierre Moerlen's frantic jazz pummeling on drums, and magical tuned percussion; Mike Howlett's funky-smooth pursuit of the cosmic groove; and Didier Malherbe's tasty soprano sax and flute musings--a crack band as good as any that EVER played rock music--accompanied by Tim Blake's divinely inspired ambient synthesizer landscapes, Daevid Allen's equally ambient glissando guitar, and the space whispers and instrumental contributions of various women named Yoni.

It's a once-in-a-millenium musical mix that would be noteworthy in and of itself, but shoots into the stratosphere because of the spiritual depth of Daevid Allen's psychedelic whimsy. Allen has written many provocative and beautiful songs, but this album is in my opinion his magnum opus, or the whole tamale if you prefer--the climactic story of everyman Zero the Hero "going round the circle of births and deaths" struggling, and failing, and struggling again to attain/maintain spiritual awakening--it's the story of everybody who ever tried. Accompanied by the musical equivalent of nirvana. (Most succinctly demonstrated by "A Sprinkling of Clouds", which is my favorite instrumental rock piece of all time--a piece of terrifying beauty, like looking into the face of God him/herself...really.)

This release of the album is lovingly, perfectly remastered, and packaged with intriguing drawings and photos of the band that give us a window into the time and place. It is the definitive CD release, and the best this incredible album has ever sounded. It is, as space-rock should be, not of this world.

Back in the mid-'70s when Pink Floyd and Camel, to name just two popular bands, were offering what could be regarded as space-rock for mainstream audiences -- playing radio-friendly songs which combined slow tempos, atmospheric instrumental passages and cinematic lyrics -- Gong continued to explore the wacky, jazz-influenced side of the genre and remained far to the left of rock's center. With the preceding two albums of the "Radio Gnome Invisible Trilogy", "Flying teapot" and "Angel's egg", it became clear that Gong wanted to break away from all sorts of traditional song structures, and "You" takes this concept to its logical conclusion by providing a vehicle for the band's improvisational approach. As a result, "You" is easily the most eccentric, innovative album of this famous trilogy. Having said that, I'm sure that "You" isn't an album for everybody, despite its title: It's sometimes atonal and slightly discordant, lacking in immediately catchy melodies, with sudden saxophone explosions and syncopated rhythms which are somewhat closer to free-jazz than to the music you usually associate with the spacious cover art-work. Just don't expect a pop record like "Dark side of the moon" -- let yourself carry away to "Planet Gong" where everything works outside of the accepted sphere of verse-chorus-verse-chorus-solo templates.Read more ›

Daevid Allen, originally with SOFT MACHINE in 1967-68, formed GONG when he got stuck in France after a Soft Machine Gig. GONG has a strange mythology evolved from one of Daevid's strangest LSD trips, revolving around PHP (pot head pixies), and the OCTAVE DOC (who knows?), which results in a psychedelic trilogy of GONG albums, that tell the story of ZERO THE HERO. So, RADIO GNOME INVISIBLE Part 1 is the FLYING TEAPOT album, "Angel's Egg" is part two, and YOU is part three. Do you need to listen to all three albums, to get the plot or musical leitmotifs? Haha, are you SERIOUS? Tho there is a small thread of coherantcy within the RADIO GONG Trilogy, what you REALLY want the YOU album for, is the incredible, etherial, cosmic music that the album contains. It brings together the SPACE WHISPER of Gilli Smyth, the slide guitar effects, and freaky theories of Daevid Allen, the lead guitar playing of STEVE HILLAGE, Mike Howlett on bass, Malherbe's beautiful and spacey Flute and Sax playing, along with a synth player, a percussionist, etc. to get these 10 minute astral journeys in the music, which are as close as music can come to turning into a spiritual UFO. That sound, is much closer to what you might hear in the KOSMISCHE music that was coming out of Berlin at the time. (GONG, tho a French band, had at least half their members from Britian, and ALWAYS sang in English.) What would have been the first side of YOU, had many short songs, four of which were less than 3 minutes long, most of them only two minutes long. BUT, you do have a couple of spaced out semi-instrumental songs like MASTER BUILDER and A SPRINKLING OF CLOUDS on the "first side".Read more ›
