One of the most discussed of Ra's New York era recordings, 'Cosmic Tones' functions as a blueprint for the sort of large-scale jazz weirdness that would inform much of Sun Ra's subsequent works, featuring the woozy reeds of And Otherness and the afro-jazz experiments of Thither And Yon.

On Adventure Equation a space echo treatment on the recording which is reprised for the sax flurries on Voice Of Space makes the whole experience even more disorientating and exciting.

The album has increasingly been discussed within the context of anticipating psychedelia or pointing towards the space funk of George Clinton; when asked about Sun Ra in 1979,Clinton said, "This boy was definitely out to lunch - the same place I eat at."
