3 stars Ultimate space rock attacks meets 60's pop songs for an original & bizarre cocktail. All compositions are dominated by omnipresent vintage keyboards, surfing on the psychedelic waves, sometimes delivering a symphonic, epic approach. Primitive bluesy rock guitars & fuzzy psych rhythms also contribute to create a special atmosphere. This is largely instrumental with a few vocals including beat pop accents. Each track is very catchy and contains long improvised sessions. "Erlkoenig impression" is a powerful, dynamic epic, almost exclusively based on furious keyboards lines and melodic, symphonic piano parts and rocking' guitars. "Tomorrow" sounds like early Pink Floyd, a psych pop ballad with current ingredients. "Thoughts" starts as a moody kraut-stoner rock composition, then goes into a fast heavy symph keyboard "trip". "Castrop Rauxel" is a rocking epic song with obvious Pink Floyd-ish flaming psych pop. "Blind Alley" is a possessed jamming rock session with lot of crying guitars, a nice groove and usual epic keyboards. Definitely recommended for those who are into the good old spych scene!
