Soft Machine - Volume Two - 1969
When I first saw this, I spent hours looking at the cover
just trying to understand what was going on... I mean,
yeah, I guess it's supposed to be a play on the fact that
'soft machine' means the human body, but aside from that,
I just could not and still can not understand exactly what is happening.
But, I suppose that's normal with these kinds of albums...
A strange album cover and seemingly messy songs
which often seem extremely unorganized and unprofessional...
But, strangely, none of that stops me from liking this album.
I mean, yeah, it's obvious that they were overly trying to be
abstract and experimental, but the music is still great!
All the psych cliches they use actually really works for them.
They really do just pull it all together quite nicely...
