Uh-oh, privately released Danish prog dead-stock alert.  I’ve been desperately avoiding crossing the threshold into the world of obscure prog records, or at least waiting until I’m in my 50’s, but this is toooooo good.  No idea who Gert Thrue is, no information online, but the shadowy photo of his face on the back next to lofty statements about universal power is enough to want to know more.  The 18+ minute full side title track is an epic cosmic saga, with indulgent Moog noodling eventually joined by slack drum fills and crusty synth strings and the feeling of blasting off into the cosmos and never looking back.  Gert reigns it in a little on the b-side, (reluctantly I imagine) chopping the durations down under the 10 minute mark, but its more very liberal synth wizardry, albeit a little straighter with the welcome inclusion of nice Hammond organ and Rhodes keys.  It’s a real trip - as if not indicated from the start with the obscure multi-religious cover.  Incredible!!  (NM/NM - unplayed deadstock)
