    I love how this song jumps around all over the place.

    Perfect example of something that takes a few listens to like, this is probably the STRONGEST piece on Third. Jesus I really can't believe I made the post I did below. I'll leave it so anyone who thinks like I did in May might change their mind.

    Not that bad, but it is the weakest piece on Third. Moon In June, Slightly All the Time, and Out-Bloody-Rageous (descending in quality) are all far better songs. This is still a nice piece in it's on right though, it's not really muddy, it's just avant-garde

    I'm all for experimental production and music and all that but most of this song is forgettable muddy shit.

    Mid section Bassline is very very similar to Gong's "Sold To The Highest Buddha" [2}

    how the fuck can music be 'outdated'

    Painfully outdated in the same way that free and independent thoughts and deeds are outdated.

    I had not heard this tune in about 30 years. And now I remember how much I love(d) it, and why. :)

    Imagine these guys opening shows for the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1968!!!

    Painfully outdated in my ears. Try Moon In June on the same album - still a delight!

    I dunno if it's what I grew up on (and there's fantastic music from all eras) but I just prefer the sound of older tunes, the production lifts you up and propels you along rather than battering you into submission. Call me an old fart, but it's as if the sound on current recordings is almost too dense and well-produced, it doesn't sound as organic and can't breathe the same way. I love this pice btw

    My 1st experience with Soft machine - Excellent Jam. Sounds all their own. Like SidwBurned Bear (below) wrote, has a lot in common with the old 'Floyd tunes.
