1. Two Hours Over Two Blue Mountains With A Cuckoo On Each Side Of The Hours...That Is

3. Children Of Possibilities
4. La Rotta
6. Rings Of Saturn
7. The Future Is A Hovering Ship, Anchored In The Past
9. The Mirrors Of Gabriel
Aside from having some of the most awesome song titles ever, this is one of the best Swedish psychedelic albums from the seventies. Like a lot of Swedish bands of similar ilk, it's a take on krautrock, but with a better incorporation of folk than their German brethren.
The album drifts through medieval folk, sitar tinged eastern and synth ambient before arriving at full on space rock. There are some proggy concepts going on here, but in a good way.
Originally released in 1972, this is the 1995 C.D. reissue, with English titles and track index markers.
Parts of this album are crazy, it's ace.
