The Radio Gnome Invisible trilogy is the definitive statement by Gong, combining Allen's philosophy, psychedelic rock, jazz-rock, synthesizer meditations, and more.

Lyrically, the trilogy covers hallucinogenic subjects like pothead pixies, octave doctors, and flying teacups, tracing the journey of Zero the Hero to discovery. But incorporating other philosophical ideas, apparently some from Buddhism, and wrapping them in the silliness, the real discovery is intended to be within. Or something like that :).

The lyrical journey is accompanied by some virtuoso performances from guitarist Steve Hillage, drummer Pierre Moerlen, woodwinds player Didier Malherbe, and synthesizer space cadet Tim Blake.
Other Side of the Sky

The final member of the trilogy is the most instrumental of the three, in both respects.

We'll also add a track here from Virgin label-mate Tangerine Dream (the CDs I'm playing this week are all on Victor, but the original vinyl issues were on Virgin).

Moving to the duo Dionne-Brégent, who I have not played in too long, and the Le Prophète / Suite Fraternelle suite from their album "Deux", featuring some pretty strong synthesizer soundscapes itself.
