4 stars This album from the Japanese space cadets gathered as collective Acid Mothers Temple rates musically to their most successful accomplishments. The title track runs over forty minutes long transcendental mantra. The voyage starts with an animistic primitive chant, which theme starts to gather acid rock sound textures around it later. The whole trip is based on simple beautiful melodies morphing from more intense sequences to more ethereal floating in cosmos, and never slipping to pointless fooling around: This is quite serious and artistically successful stuff, unlike some other more humorous releases of this enigmatic band. I think they have released nearly every session they have recorded like Frank Zappa, and the poor stoned hippie is left to the dilemma where to start approaching the huge record catalogue. There are some acoustic instruments like violins also softening the space rock tones. The short middle song based on singing is the weakest link here, but not ruining the album quality. The last song running seventeen minutes starts as a rhythmless mystical realm of sounds, painting up surreal visions and dreamy associations. Later it slowly turns to a more chaotic space rock stoner nightmare with bellowing guitars and thick layers of cosmic synth tunes. As a complete set, these tracks make up a very good abstract psychedelic vintage record, warmly recommended to the fans of meditative psychedelic voyages.
