5 stars This is by far my favorite Boredoms album, and in actuality is my favorite album all together. As far as style goes, it's a mix of electronica, psychedelia, trance, math rock, noise, and all out madness. Perfect blend of profound discovery and cosmic belly laughing. As far as comparisons go, Id say its a mix of Taiko drummers sitting in a teepee synching on Peyote, at times reminicent of Don Cherry's early 70's free/world jazz with Okay Temiz and Johnny Dyanni, some Black Moth Super Rainbow synth melodies through heavy delay, guitar riffs in the style of Don Caballero or Lightning Bolt (minus the distortion and feedback), and drum and bass lines like that of Violent Onsen Geisha. The titles of the tracks are symbols, but the highlights for me are #1 (circle), #3 (heart), and #8 (omega). Since there are already reviews breaking down each track I wont go into it, however I will say that the moments which define the album as my favorite are moments which at first seem to turn people off to it. For example my moment shines through on track 8 (omega), which begins with calming male/female chanting, and breaks away into roughly 6 minutes of chaotic billowing psychedelic synth patterns. This 6 minutes is the ultimate soundscape, the ugliest yet somehow most beautiful moment, and at least in my opinion, is the culmination of what the title of the album set out to define : Vision Creation Newsun. Anymore, music no longer bring dream visions or eyelid images as it used to, but rather is replaced by an estactic connection bridging the senses with external stimuli. But this album is pure psychedelic trance if you allow it to be, getting lost in it's depths creates beautiful mental visions. Honestly I feel that other than dreaming, this is an experiment in creating unique music as heard differently by every person. At times the noise comes through in such overwhelming waves that I imagine anyone listening to it will pick and choose different sounds coming through and the mind tends to put the pieces together as it sees fit, each time in more complex ways. And it doesnt matter much how heavy the influence of psychedelics has, it can appeal to anyone who is willing to confront what they know about music, shatter it, and then try and put it all back together again. I give it the top rating because there is not one second, not one synchopated beep which strikes chords in me the wrong way. 5 stars to the max!
