4 stars Never listened before to Motorpyscho: a total surprise for me, suggested by a streaming media (ehm...) and got hooked to this record immediately. Such a variety, from ballads (like "Ghost", in a Wilco-flavor style; or the really-superbe "Entropy") to rockers like "On a plate" and "The Promise", to more progressive numbers (all the other ones!?). 1 hour of music that's flying away in a whisper, with great ideas. Highly enthralling are "Cloudwalker" that reminds a little of Yes in the choruses,"The "Kvaestor" is astoundingly magnetic,with some craziness developed on a underlying loop, but also with great riffs. The minisuite "Hell 4-6" is also remarkable, and build similarly on accumulation to the end part, where up to 3/4 theres a variety of subtle and gentle nice guitars, flute and mellotron. "The magic & the Wonder" is more eclectic, though short in duration. The final "Hell" erupts with rock & fusion (?) in a free-form, improvised like - a closure that you couldn't expect from the previous pieces. As said in the beginning, a great album, no filler - all good and great. Most likely one of the top-3 2014 release (I'm curious to see which one could be at least at the same level...). Rating: 9/10
