4 stars The personal direction and '70s prog orientation of Simeon Soul Charger is pretty obvious since the first tones of 'Vedanta'. Wide guitar areas are colliding with decent licks and patterns, and it's all enhanced by very charismatic vocal expression of Aaron Brooks, the leader of Simeon Soul Charger. All songs are following each other, so the whole album is perfectly linked inside.

If I had to choose the best moments of this record, I would say 'God Lends a Hand', 'Though the Trees They Talk', both parts of 'Europe's Garden' and 'The Swallowing Mouth'. But as I already said, this album is amazing from the beginning to the end. It is a fusion of such a different influences - I hear a lot of Black Sabbath influenced stuff here, also something of Pink Floyd and bands like Queen, Cream and much more from late '60s and early '70s era.

It's more than just another 'retro' band on the scene (Rival Sons, Orchid etc.), it is the new, original way to go. And I simply love it. Recommendable stuff.
