With Nightmares in Wonderland, there’s a noticeable shift away from the groovy freakbeat of preceding Rubble collections toward heady psychedelia. (Of course, this proved to be the evolution of many '60s mod bands.) Two of The Pretty Things’ most musically adventurous tunes surface here. "Talkin' About the Good Times" was a 1967 single that never turned up on a proper album until the 2003 reissue of S.F. Sorrow. It’s a brilliant intersection of Syd Barrett–era Floyd’s inner visionary pomp and Sgt. Pepper–inspired studio wizardry (Styx ambitiously covered the tune on its 2005 album Big Bang Theory). Blending backmasked vocals with walls of reverb and whimsical woodwinds that bump against fuzz guitar, “Mr. Evasion” is another Pretty Things mind-melter. It was first released as a humble b-side to the similarly trippy "Defecting Grey." Twink sang Aquarian Age’s “10,000 Words in a Cardboard Box” (also here) shortly before he joined The Pretty Things. Tomorrow’s “Revolution” closes with wall-to-wall Hendrixian wah-wah guitar.
