5 stars This album is absolutely mindbowing and a productive explosion of weird haunted sounds created by violins, electronic psych dynamics. The two parts are largely improvised and catch the essence of the moment, highly inspired and mystically powerful. The intense assemblage, superposition of sounds work perfectly to offer a huge freak out jam. Ambiences are rather abstract and immersive, revealing a surprising dialectic between Dadaist, surreal motifs (with reminiscences from Fluxus sound installations, happenings), always moving minimalist abrasive / ethereal drones for voices, amplified acoustic instruments and bizarre percussions. Among the coolest weirdest things offered in 70's psych rock and surely the most original Japanese musical association from that era (beyond the kraut rocking Far East Family Band and others). This is devastating "poetical" music against all sort of conformism.
