4 stars This album has been published in 1974 but remains absolutely modern and dynamic. I consider it as the last Brainticket's consistent work. After the primitive, stoned and weird improvisations of the two first, this time the Swiss collective put the priority on monumental, sensual electronic synth moves, also including acoustic arrangements (flute, "exotic" percussions, piano...). Their style is now closer to classic progressive rock within a lyrical tendency and technical instrumentations, partially rejecting the "kosmische" kraut essays of their debut. We are more into a meditative astral exploration, featuring natural organic sounds, creative harmonies and spaces. However krautrock fans won't be disappointed: "Celestial Ocean" is maybe much more organised and orchestrated but contains catchy psychedelic scintillations. "Egyptian kings" is a hypnotic world of sounds, including repetitive bass lines, druggy flute parts and a "cosmic" combination of voices. "Rainbow" is a kind of electronic raga for crystalline loops. "The space between" is an esoteric, atmospheric & percussive interlude . The epic and colourful "Visions" is almost symphonic. Profound and really achieved!
