While the band was playing Desolation Valley, Mick zoomed in on the picture below — minus the red men!

" An awesome follow-up to the classic debut. The album starts with the 17–minute title track, which got a atmosphere that fits the title quite good. The track sounds like it was recorded in a big hall, with Nektar on one side of the hall, and the recording–equipment on the other side. I think this production gives the track a very powerful sound. Great themes, and all the other stuff you want from a composition of this length. The rest of the album is almost heavy–progressive, but with the typical Nektar–sound. "Desolation Valley" is quite genius with its simplistic, but extremely powerful and effective riffs. The build up of this song is just great. "King of Twilight" is another classic. Stated simply: an excellent album," Tommy Shoenbergs.
