Derrick May said that he and his friends would listen to the whole LP over and over again for weeks, Juan Atkins said the same and it fit in with his early vision of Science fiction music from outer space, and clearly had an influence on his early Model 500 / Metroplex output.

Sampled a million times since, most notably on "Sueno Latino". Very Inspiring and deep music.
