  1. Arguably Gong’s finest album, ‘You’ was the third and final instalment in their beloved Radio Gnome Trilogy, bringing Zero The Hero’s story to a close. ’s Flying Teapot album opened.
  2. 2nd disc of classic, previously un-released live multi-tracked Gong mixed by Mike Howlett. One time pressing in this format. The previously unreleased Hyde Park multi-track recordings of the second disc are stunning. The whole band, Pierre Moerlen in particular, are playing out of their skins. So fresh, so powerful, so Gong.
  3. Progressive rock listeners will mostly like Gong because of the charismatic psychedelic space rock albums of the Radio Gnome Trilogy. Since enigmatic frontman Daevid Allen and 'space whisperer' Gilli Smith have both passed away the Gong tradition has been continued by a group of musicians which has been present since 's 'I See You' album - which was the last album on which Allen and Smith.
  4. One of the most intriguing aspects of this album is GONG's ability to shift abruptly from harmless, sunny-day pop music a la The BEATLES (the opening two tracks) to an ominous, mystical fury a la MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA ("Master Builder," and the band's masterpiece, "A Sprinkling of Clouds"). "You" is for me the perfect mix of Tim Blake's sea of synthesizers, Didier Malherbe's sax offset by /5(68).
