3 stars krautrockin's tripped out jams mixed with heavy-jazzy plays. Compositions are largely sung but always feature extended, eccentric, groovy & jazzy variations. Vintage keyboards and aggressive sax (Closed to VDGG) made the major work here. "Byrd-Night Of The Seventh Day" starts with a brilliant, evocative "epic" introduction then it carries on an original prog rock song (in the genre of King Crimson during the red-era), including a nice jazzy vibe in the instrumental sections (fully dominated by technical psych keyboards). "Gammeloni" is a cool jazzy improvisation, alternating long floating, melodic lines and decadent, uncontrolled sax solos. A lot of fun here and gorgeous acid effects. The end contains venomous guitar solos, much more fascinating than the first track which sounds like an imitation of famous, classic English bands. "Uzzek of Rigel IV" typically looks like to a VDGG composition, a bombastic, dark, powerful song. After five minutes, the guitar section tends to deliver some nice Zappa-esque musical specificities. "Suite" is a killer instrumental session, mixing ultra aggressive sax parts, majestic keyboards and amazing guitars. The middle of the song contains a nice break for relaxing raga buzzing sitar (before returning into a chaotic, frantic jazzy rock madness). Some very good moments and absolutely recommended for VDGG fans.
