Album Notes
This album is not a nostalgic 'cover set' of Soft Machine's greatest hits, but rather a representation of the what 'might have been' if these two British groups had ever met. Here the music and spirit of Soft Machine surfaces through the quartet's own unique soundworld.

This review is from: Dedicated to You But You Weren't Listening (Audio CD)*****

'I purchased this on a whim having recently discovered how good Soft Machine's "Third" and "Fourth" are. This is something different and highlights the beauty and complexity of the compositions.

I confess I'm not all that familiar with all of the originals of these pieces but it does not in any way dispel the pleasure of these recordings. Here the works are given not so much a new arrangement, more a re-imagining. The new setting suiting the pieces well.

The playing throughout is excellent with the players entwining themselves around both the music and each other. Many of the pieces are slower and thoughtful but occasionally they burst out. Whilst pieces like "Everything Is You" have a wonderful medative quality "Mousetrap" manages to burst free. It has a dynamic feel and also feels a lot more like a piece of classical minimalism than an jazz-rock piece.

The sound is clean and the playing uniformly excellent. It is not the most straightforward of records but there is much to enjoy here. The original fans of the band (especially the stuff from "Third" onwards) are quite likely to like this. A surprisingly excellent work. '
