4 stars The Black Tomato album is a well coloured arrangement that listens like a recurring story. It fades in and fades out leaving an overlap that will have you happily scrolling over this album front to back over and over. The multi-artist line-up deliver an engrossing collaboration of sounds that have earned the band the Space-Rock, Prog-Rock genre it deserves.

Here ěresund Space Collective experiment with oblique structures of sound integrating them intricately. They approach the collaboration of sounds like a biologist analysing each organism of sound and meticulously weaving them into each other. The arrangements are multi layered yet highly collaborative sounds that excites the ears to no end. The prog approach of ěresund Space Collective is light to medium allowing more for the recognition of the space-rock aspect, yet the 'play' on its structuring keeps the listener well attached to their message. Though a mild push of prog, the collaborative method gives the impression toward an honest and true-to form loyalty of a more classic era.

Pushing familiarity of the past, sounds hinted with the ol' Hammond organ (Doors) conservatively layer the sound for that classic prog feel. Heavy echoing, overdrive and Wah-Wah peddling guitars (Iron Butterfly) also draw to a bygone era that was classified by its stylistic arrangement of sounds at the time. Modern keyboard euphoria (Hawkwind) emphatically states the space-rock genre intent. Percussion is a major driving factor accompanying alongside a very active guitar make-up.

Almost typical of space-prog-rock, tracks are elongated so as to travel you to another place while only remaining seated in your favourite observation post. Coming to the end of any of the 9 tracks is akin to arriving at your physical travel destination of a long distance trek as if it were only a few minutes.
