4 stars After hearing an awful lot how versatile Motorpsycho are and listening to, admittedly, a few of their latter-day albums and finding them at a heavy prog/classic rock mood, I decided to take a shot in the dark and just pick at random an album of their back repertoire. Boy I am glad I did.

What we find on Phanerothyme (whatever that is, well, I know now what that is, but when you read for the first, you like go, what the hell) is a collection of mostly compact, retro introspective pop rock/psychedelic/bluesy-folksy Americana tunes (and just one harder-rocking tune), often orchestrated with lush instrumentation - violins, retro keys, oboes, flutes and so on, even a banjo. These songs may not be progressive, but the band definitely is.
