"Although Introspection bombed due to a belated release, collectors have since heralded it as one of the finest albums from the brief British psychedelic wave. Produced by Rolling Stone Bill Wyman in early 1968, the spirit of the era (or maybe that of the previous summer) is sonically created, with sumptuous results. Giffin and Graham's gentle harmony vocals tread a similar path to Odessey and Oracle-era Zombies, while sessionman Nicky Hopkins' harpsichord, a pumping Hammond, Terry Taylor's searing Cream-like fuzztone guitar leads, psychedelic duel-ragas, and floating Mellotron recreate the colors of a rainbow ... With an abundance of moods, tones, and a gloriously over the top production, Introspection is a superb period piece, and rightfully deserves it's near-classic status." (AllMusic)

"Among the records included as part of Decca Records release schedule in November 1969 appeared an album that in retrospect should have receive more commercial attention than it attained. The album was "Introspection" by The End, a psychedelic masterpiece that owed its existence due to the patronage of Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and is itself a part of Rolling Stones history." (
