4 stars Heavy metal fruit? More like heavy psychedelic fruit. Not the heaviest Motorpsycho release (standing in between their heavy rock and alternative rock leanings), but surely one of the trippiest. The bulk of the fruit consists of mostly very long songs, with bluesy and rocking riffs quickly dissolving into extended long-building jams and walls of sound. But the good thing is that Motorpsycho don't settle for simple drones - annoying feedback noise (for noisy they may be) or linear build-ups, underneath there's a decent groove or a poppy melody. For the latter, check the sweeping symphonic alternative rock ending to the 20-minute closer. Though it may not be the most varied epic I've heard, but the title - Gulliver's Travels, pardon, I meant Gullible's Travails - alone deserves a 4-star rating.
