5 stars What a fantastic album! Of the three early Brainticket this is my favorite. Take the first 2 tracks from 'Cottonwoodhill', "Black Sand" and "Places of Light", add a more mature, mellow, ethnic and stoned sound and more diversity, and you have some idea of the feel of 'Psychonaut' (alternately, if you have heard 'Celestial Ocean', the majority of this album sounds most like the track "Egyptian Kings"). While not usually getting to the forcefulness of the former two pieces, the songs on 'Psychonaut' show a flowing range of diversity that makes the album very pleasant to listen to. Whereas 'Cottonwoodhill' was a more acid rock oriented album, this is more stoned-out (though they both have each quality) and one of my absolute favorites to listen to under that influence. I can't pick any standout tracks because every song is excellent ("Radagacuca" might be my slight favorite). The quality of this album forgives the fact that the thing's a mere 32 minutes long.

Recommended to those liking krautrock, psychedelic, electronic, and ethnic acoustic musical textures and bands such as Agitation Free, Popol Vuh, Dom, Amon Düül II, Can, Brave New World, Kalacakra, Ashra, Ash Ra Tempel, Dzyan, Yatha Sidhra and Bröselmaschine.

5 stars!
