5 stars Holy Music is a visionary album recorded during the 60's. In opposite to their contemporaries who expressed psychedelic grooves throw pop-ish instrumentation (Kaleidoscope, Vanilla Fudge, Gandalf to name a few ones ) Malachi were more orientated to a sonic fusion between pure avant-garde and divine cosmic folk. This splendid, divinely inspired album is mainly focused on primal raga guitar technics and mantra-like ornamentations. Holy music is a top class acid folk-ish acoustic trip, reaching the listener on peak aesthetic-mystical experiences. In style, one piece doesn't substantially differs from the other. There is a logical continuity between ideas and the sound form. It opens with the magnificant second and its otherworldly-luminous harp / guitar duo and weird exotica experiments. Sixth carries on the same schema with the addition of nice entrancing guitar glissandos. This is stricly instrumental, only the last piece features some stoned-like vocals on real tripped out shamanic musical background. Definitely cult and magic.
