3 stars Cybotron is an Australian cult spacey age electronic trip. This album is the first one published under the name. After several listenings I must admit that this one is reminiscence of Klaus Schulze / Tim Blake's golden analog-synth era but Cybotron's original sound features much more propulsive-energetic vibes into the brainey synthscapes. This is surprisingly punchy and epic at the same time. Consequently this is not relaxation music but an inspired-kinetic and atmospheric voyage through inner spaces. It opens with the epically-moving and rhythmical sci-fi soundscape "arrakais". It sounds a little bit dated but the inter-sidereal energies are penetrating and beautifully catchy. Mumbo Jumbo develops epic driven electronic rythms, including cosmic-jazzy grooves. Gods of Norse is a true cosmic peacefulness with strangely grandiose melodies, frenetic hypnotic noises and perpetual drum moves. Parameters of Consciousness is in the same mood, always comibining distinctive sonic-new agey synthesised melodies, sci-fi noises and pulsating hypno-rythms. Sonic Overdrive is an eerie-tranquil textural soundscape for large mellow synth waves and static sound forms. No essential but a pleasant curiosity that deserves a listen for fans of kosmische-astral psychedelica of the 70's.
