Drawing from many influences - notably King Crimson and Canterbury with a Zappian touch - Carpet stir up a warm and sublimely velvety brew, so dense that could almost be eaten. The centerpieces feature long instrumental passages, carefully structured within a prog frame so that the jazzier/psychier elements never take the song astray. A perfect balance of abundance and structure, visually reflected in the stunning, constructivist textbook and cover art. Sweet food for the ear and the brain.
Favorite track: Man Changing The Atoms.
